The Life of a Chicken by Angela Royston


The Life of a Chicken by Angela Royston

Designed specially for young independent readers, aged between 6 and 8, the Perspective collection combines core non-fiction features - including an emphasis on research skill - with a visual design that encourages readers to look at these topics in a different way. Life Cycles books follow the life of an animal or plant as it changes. In some cycles there is a dramatic change, such as that from caterpillar to butterfly. In others the changes is gradual but no less fascinating, as when the book covers such familiar animals as dogs and cats.
