Collins Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 4--7 edited by Cliff Moon. Top children's authors and illustrators have created fiction and non-fiction books that your children will love to read, banded to help you choose the right book for every child. Practical teaching notes are included at the back of each book. Featuring a variety of cars, this photographically illustrated book cues children to identify different types of car by colour. Each left hand page shows the car in close-up while the text cues the colour, and the right hand page shows the car in action, driving along a road or tearing around a Grand Prix circuit. A final double page spread shows all of the cars clearly labelled by colour to help children recap. Pink A level (Band 1A) books offer emergent readers very simple text clearly supported by illustrations.
A non-fiction book which looks at a variety of car types in different colours.
