Contains the four books: All My Own Stories; My Very Own Stories; Cosy Corner Stories and Rocking Chair Stories
Tales from Brierybank is a series of
four books of stories chosen for their nostalgic quality. They are selections of animal stories, folk
tales and fairy tales from all over the world, and have a charming
traditional feel. They are great for reading aloud to younger
children, or for children who are just beginning to read on their
own with a little help from an adult or older child.
large clear type and attractive line drawings, the stories
in this series of early readers are perfect for meeting the needs
of youngsters 5+, and are suitable for Key Stage 1 (5–7 years
old). They provide a middle ground between picture books and
longer “proper” books. These tales are accessible for those who
are already fluent readers, and also for those starting to read with
assistance from an adult, and they are great shared as read-aloud
stories for the family.
stories in each book are easily understood in terms of both concept and
language. Familiar vocabulary at an appropriate level is used
throughout, and words are easy to decode, are repeated, and easy
to read. Illustrations support the text and the longer stories are
divided into short “chapters” like a proper book. Achieving success
with books such as these, leads to more success with harder books,
and the enjoyment experienced leads to a lifelong love of reading.
Each book is paperback; format: 193 x 124mm 192 pages.
Also available in a slipcased set of four books
