Great Gadgets by David Orme


Great Gadgets by David Orme

Find out about some of the coolest gadgets ever. What's the most important gadget ever invented? How do mobile phones woork? What about email? What do robots look like? Who said the world only needs five computers? (Duh!) Get the facts. Then read the story 'Bludworld3' and find out what happens when you prefer computer games to real life. Great Gadgets is part of the Trailblazers series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist in books for struggling and reluctant readers. Each book in the series has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction story is told in two formats - one with simple text, the other with 'speech bubble' illustrations. These two levels of entry offer the complete story at different reading levels, and the vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills. Each book is on a strong, popular topic, with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction. Great Gadgets is ideal for children aged 8 - 14 with a reading age of 6 - 7.
