Frank has been looking forward to a day at the beach with Dad for so long. As soon as he arrives and sees his annoying cousin Lara and her friend Kai at the beach too, he knows the day has been ruined. But, will Frank be able to put aside his disappointment and be a team player when it counts? Reflect is a series of emotionally powerful fiction and non-fiction with realistic settings, carefully crafted to promote thoughtful discussions and develop higher-level reading comprehension. Written by top authors and developed with Literacy expert Nikki Gamble, these are books you can trust to engage, entertain and support children's personal development and wellbeing. The books are finely levelled, making it easy to match every child to books with the right depth and complexity, and helping them to progress. Each book contains inside cover notes to help children deepen their understanding and support their reading comprehension. Teaching notes on Oxford Owl offer cross-curricular links to Relationships Education and support literacy skills.
