Paddington Goes for Gold Band 15/Emerald

Written by Michael Bond

Illustrated by R.W. Alley

Part of the Collins Big Cat Series

Paddington Goes for Gold Band 15/Emerald Synopsis

A hilarious picture book featuring Paddington, the classic bear from Darkest Peru, as he takes part in a local family sports event with rather sticky results! Paddington is in high competitive spirits when he accompanies the Brown family to a local sports day. But whether he's putting the shot, helping Jonathan and Judy get ready for the three-legged race, or taking part in a relay, nothing goes quite as planned. Will a gold medal ever be within Paddington's reach? Children can recap the different ways Paddington tried to help in the sports day races through the summary on pages 30-31, providing lots of speaking and listening opportunities. Emerald/Band 15 books provide a widening range of genres including science fiction and biography, prompting more ways to respond to texts. Ideas for Reading provide practical support and stimulating activities.
