"Food" is one of three new additions to this popular non-fiction series. There are four books on the theme of food - all carefully created to make information accessible to young readers. Large, exciting photographs draw readers into the text and get them thinking about the topic. The text is layered to provide for different reading abilities. The books incorporate all the features of non-fiction texts that pupils are now required to study in their literacy lessons: a contents list, diagrams, charts, captions, informational text, a glossary, an index, etc. The strand is accompanied by a Teaching Guide which provides expert advice, lesson plans and photocopiable resources for teaching non-fiction skills through guided reading and writing.
