Lost Animals by David Orme


Lost Animals by David Orme

This book is about animals that have disappeared - animals that are now extinct. How does it happen, and why? Find out all about alien species and mass extinctions. Find out about animals that seemed to come back from the dead. And which animal went extinct when a tree fell on the very last one in the whole world? Get the facts. Then read 'The Last Mammoth', a story about where the past meets the present. Lost Animals 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. Lost Animals 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.
