Nature Fights Back Band 18/Pearl Synopsis

Collins Big Cat supports every primary child on their reading journey from phonics to fluency. Top authors and illustrators have created fiction and non-fiction books that children love to read. Levelled for guided and independent reading, each book includes ideas to support reading. Teaching and assessment support and eBooks are also available. Learn all about rewilding and how nature fights back even when it appears to have been wiped out. Discover how farmland grows back into forest, deserted cities turn into wilderness, and life appears on volcanoes which erupt from the sea. Pearl/Band 18 books offer fluent readers a complex, substantial text with challenging themes to facilitate sustained comprehension, bridging the gap between a reading programme and longer chapter books. Text type: An information book Ideas for reading in the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities Bitten by a crocodile, charged by giant otters and chased up a tree by peccary wild boars in the Amazon, Simon Chapman is a self-confessed jungle addict. He has trekked through untouched rainforests around the world but also seen the damage that people have done to them. His inspiration for his book, Nature Fights Back, comes from seeing how wild nature hangs on and can go on to thrive even when seemingly devastated by fire, pollution or logging.
