Avoid Being a Mammoth Hunter! by John Malam


Avoid Being a Mammoth Hunter! by John Malam

The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters and to follow the story of the mammoth hunters living in the Ice Age. Informative captions, a comprehensive glossary and an index make this title an ideal and fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts. It is an ideal text for Key Stage 2 shared and guided reading and helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
