These are first reading books for 3-5 year olds. You can join Alan and Jack as they set off into the lush forest...and into a whole load of trouble! However, learning to read will be no trouble with this larger-than-life adventure - it's ideal for show and tell. It introduces words such as leaf (one of which whacks Jack in the face) and gorilla (which gives Alan a hug). Silly situations, repeated vocabulary and bright pictures on every one of the big-format pages will help children to feel confident as they build up their reading skills. This tale of tropical trouble makes reading fun. It can be used in several ways to help readers gain confidence. Grown-ups can begin by reading the illustrated words at the edge of each left-hand page with the child. Have fun trying to spot the same terms in the story itself, as Alan and Jack gradually lose their supplies of fruit and snacks to an affectionate ape, a mischievous monkey, a pesky parrot and a slithering snake. Finally, all the illustrated phrases can be found at the back of the book. Enjoy checking all the words that you can now read together!
