LoveReading View on Green Bananas: Shout, Show and Tell!

Containing three related short stories in and around the classrom for first readers this book is ideal for children who are beginning to want to read longer stories than those in most picture books.  There is only a small amount of text per page accompanied by speech bubbles for shared reading and brightly coloured illustrations which help support the child’s understanding of the text.  Shout, Show and Tell is part of the Banana Books reading series – quality stories for young readers – which in turn is divided into Green, Blue and Red Bananas.  Green Bananas, like this one are for first readers, generally from 3-5 years, Blue Bananas are for developing readers (age 5+) and Red Bananas are for newly fluent readers (age 6+).  Every one of them is written and illustrated by well established authors and artists.

Green Bananas: Shout, Show and Tell! Synopsis

Sean is always shouting and rushing about. But when he gets stuck in a cupboard with Miss Green, his noisiness comes in handy! No one's taking any notice of Daisy today. But when her wobbly tooth comes out, she's got plenty to show and tell! Lily is feeling sad. Her mum and dad don't live together any more and everything's different. But when she draws a brilliant book she feels much better! Three lovely, warmly told classroom stories, which young readers will understand and relate to.
