Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Reflect: Oxford Level 18: Holiday of a Lifetime Synopsis

My dad says we're going on a holiday that will be unforgettable. It may well be - but not for the reasons he thinks. I'm going to be crammed into an ugly old van with three infuriating brothers, and driven around Europe by a dad who doesn't think things through and a mum who doesn't stop him. This had better be a once-in-a-lifetime holiday - there's no way I'm doing it twice! Join budding writer Izzy as the Travises set out looking for adventure, and instead find what it means to be a family. Reflect is a series of emotionally powerful books with realistic settings, carefully crafted to promote thoughtful discussions and develop higher-level reading comprehension. Written by top childrens authors and developed with Literacy expert and Series Editor Nikki Gamble, these are books you can trust to engage, entertain and support childrens personal development. The books are finely levelled, making it easy to match every child to stories with the right depth and complexity for them, 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.
