Book Description

1 May 2006 Banana Books

A tale of two boys and their shiny, sturdy toys from Valerie Wilding for Egmont’s green banana series.

When Leo comes to play with Ben, disaster strikes. Leo's beloved new digger is broken. Will their friendship survive this setback? And, more importantly, can they mend the digger?

Green bananas are divided into short, simple stories to develop reading techniques over a number of sessions. They are suitable for NC Level 1 readers. Green Bananas are carefully designed with education in mind, supporting children’s understanding of how to read longer books. Green bananas only use one clause in each sentence and rely on dialogue and speech bubbles to encourage reading aloud.

This is an excellent book. My 2 year old grandson loved the brightly coloured pictures. The story is about 2 little boys and how they learn to share. I can recommend this book to anyone with young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable reading 18 April 2010
By Tuppney
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this range of books and regularly use them within my lessons to remind students in my class of the hidden morals within the stories.

They really enjoy them and easily encourage discussions and enhance understanding but providing situations which children can relate to.

I love them all.

By p31Mom - Published on
Longish book for a 3 yr old but broken into 3 sections and well illustrated. Keeps his attention. Story of 2 boys playing and all the pitfalls that can happen in a playdate. good times, toys breaking, sharing issues, disagreements, playing together, etc. Good story, good illustrations and good teaching tool for proper social behavior and children working it out.
