My Brother Bernadette

Written by Jacqueline Wilson

Illustrated by David Roberts

Part of the Reading Ladder Level 3 Series

Featured Books for 5+ readers

LoveReading View on My Brother Bernadette

Fabulous reissue of an absolute gem of a book by on of the bestselling authors of all time but this is one of the very few titles by Jacqueline Wilson suitable for newly fluent readers. Still with colour illustrations on every page it introduces chapters to the reader.  My Brother Bernadette is part of Egmont's Red Bananas series and there are plenty of others in the bunch as well.  For younger and less fluent readers why not try Egmont's Green Bananas, short stories heavily illustrated for first readers and also their Blue Bananas which are simple stories for developing readers, again with lots of illustrations.

My Brother Bernadette Synopsis

Sara always gets lumbered with looking after her little brother Bernard. And summer project at the local school is no different. There's so much to do - football, judo, trampolining, model car making, computer games and drama.

But all Bernard wants to do is clothes design. Soon all the kids, led by Big Dan, are calling Bernard 'Bernadette' and shoving him around. Sara wants to help but she doesn't want to make it worse.

But 'Bernadette' is a little boy with big ideas. And he has a plan up his very nicely designed sleeve...
