Sharks by David Orme


Sharks by David Orme

Which type of shark do you most NOT want to meet in the water? But if you are attacked - where's the best place to poke a shark? Great White Sharks, Bull Sharks, even Whales Sharks - it's all in here. Get the facts. Then read the adventure story 'Swimming with Sharks'. Learn the big lesson of the day: don't bleed when there are sharks around. Sharks is part of the Trailblazers series, published by Ransom Publishing. It is ideal for older children and young adults with a reading age of 5 - 8. The books are suitable for general reading or as part of a more structured reading programme. Each book is on a strong, popular topic, with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction. Each book has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction story appears in two formats - one with simple texts for poor readers; the facing pages contain an illustrated speech bubble version of the same story, for those who are just starting to learn to read. These two levels of entry give access points for children and young adults with different reading ages. The vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills, which make the books suitable for even the poorest readers.
