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. This ingenious non-fiction book provides an introduction to different minibeasts in a very inspiring way. Each minbeast is introduced first with a clear photograph supporting the text. On the facing page another photograph shows children forming the image of the minibeast through the shape of their bodies and the clothes that they wear. Pages 14 and 15 provide a pictoral summary of both the actual minibeasts and their human imitators. 'Minibeasts' links brilliantly into Art and PE:dance and movement as well as Science.
