Trouble Under the Ocean (Giant Size) by Nicola Baxter

These are first reading books for 3-5 year olds. You can join Anna and Fred as they dive beneath the waves...and end up in deep trouble! Silly situations, repeated vocabulary and bright pictures on every one of the big-format pages will help children to feel confident as they build up their reading skills. It introduces words such as crab, rocks, shark and treasure - all of which are encountered by Anna and Fred. Learning to read will be no trouble with this larger-than-life adventure - which is ideal for show and tell. This tale of trouble underwater makes reading fun. It can be used in several ways to help young readers to dive in and gain confidence. Grown-ups can start by reading the illustrated words at the edge of each left-hand page with the child. Have fun spotting the same terms in the story itself, as Anna and Fred face all manner of deep-sea creatures, including a mischievous octopus, a friendly dolphin and a nippy little lobster. Finally, all the pictured phrases can be found at the back of the book. Enjoy checking all the words that you can now read together!
