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. A young monster is getting everything she needs to take a dip: a boat, a toy shark, armbands, goggles, flippers...all she needs to take a bath! The vividly drawn artwork shows each step of the monster's careful preparations, offering lots of discussion points: is she going for a swim in a pool? In the sea? A final double page spread shows the monster in the bath, with all her toys labelled, to help children recap and discuss. Pink B level (BAnd 1B) books offer simple, predictable text with familiar objects and actions.
