5.0 out of 5 stars Washing Day 'blues' 17 Mar 2008
in this story, from the 'READING CORNER' story book series.

'READING CORNER covers three grades of early reading ability, with three levels at each grade. Each level has a certain number of words per story, indicated by the number of bars on the spine of the book, to allow you to choose the right book for a young reader.'

This particular story is one from the GRADE 2 level/3 BAR level - 200 words.

32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format. Numbered pages.

From the back cover:-

'It's the day of the big match. Normally Harrison can't wait to play. But not today.....'

Beautifully illustrated throughout, this story is further enhanced by meaningful facial expressions.
Clear text, emphasised in capital letters - for effect - in places.

Example of text:-

'Harrison loved football. He was in the school team.
Harrison looked great in his kit. At least, he usually did.
But not today. Today Harrison's football shirt was......'

...well.....rather different to what it was when it went in the washing machine ........and things get progressively worse!
However, it doesn't matter in the end when a satisfactory result is achieved!

'READING CORNER has been structured to provide maximum support for new readers. The stories may be used by adults for sharing with young children. Primarily, however, the stories are designed for newly independent readers, whether they are reading these books in bed at night, or in the reading corner at school or in the library.
Starting to read alone can be a daunting prospect. READING CORNER helps by providing visual support and repeating words and phrases, while making reading enjoyable. These books will develop confidence in the new reader, and encourage a love of reading that will last a lifetime!'
