Trouble on the Ice (Giant Size) by Nicola Baxter


Trouble on the Ice (Giant Size) by Nicola Baxter

These are first reading books for 3-5 year olds. Join Rosa and Tom as they travel to the frozen North...and into a whole heap of trouble! Learning to read is 'snow' trouble at all with this larger-than-life adventure - perfect for show and tell. The book introduces words such as anchor, iceberg and whale - all of which are encountered by Rosa and Tom. Silly situations, repeated vocabulary and bright pictures on every one of the giant-format pages will help children to feel confident as they develop their reading skills. It's fun to start reading with this troublesome tale! The book can be used in a number of different ways to help young readers build confidence. Grown-ups can begin by reading the illustrated words at the edge of each left-hand page with the child. Have an 'ice' time spotting the same terms within the story itself, as explorers Rosa and Tom slip and slide, and have their camera stolen by a polar bear. Finally, all the illustrated words can be found on the last two pages of the book, so you can enjoy checking all the phrases that you can now read together!

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.

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
