Collins Arabic Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11.
The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins.
This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 3 books introduce the concept of the `story', and include simple phonic sounds and very high-frequency words with simple spellings. Sesame and Apricot love to chase each other - along the street, through the park, round and round...
But when one animal is in trouble, the other is sure to help. Shoo Rayner's illustrations in this wonderfully humorous book bring the two central characters vividly to life, and provide lots for beginner readers to talk about.
Included at the end of the book, following the story, is a simple story map that can be used to recap and check understanding. Lively and engaging illustrations to keep children interested
