Ancient Mysteries by David Orme


Ancient Mysteries by David Orme

Who built a space port for aliens? Who lost the lost city of Atlantis? What's a Big Foot? Do Yeti exist? And what's the secret of the Great Pyramid of Khufu? These are some of the ancient mysteries we still need to solve. Get the facts. Then read 'Doorway to Demons', a story about what happens when you're both the good guy and the bad guy. Ancient Mysteries 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. Ancient Mysteries is ideal for children aged 8 - 14 with a reading age of 6 - 7.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
