Thsi is a first reading book. It's fun to start reading with this great big book based on a well-loved theme - ideal for show-and-tell! Join Tim, Tessa and Eddy the teddy bears on their picnic - none of them has very much food to take, but by sharing and working together, they have plenty. It introduces words such as basket, bee, butterfly, road, field, grass and gate. Large-format pages, simple repeated language and appealing characters make this book perfect for helping with every child's first steps in reading. If you open this book today, you're sure of a big surprise! Based on the popular rhyme of the same name, this special adaptation can be used in several ways to allow early learners to gain confidence in reading. Grown-up helpers can start by saying the illustrated words shown at the side of each left-hand page. Key words on the right-hand page have already been introduced on the left-hand page, so readers can have fun trying to spot the same words in the story itself. All the pictured words are recapped in a dictionary at the back of the book.
