Product Description

Review

Nikki Gamble has used her expertise as a literacy consultant and writer on children's literature to compile this selection of over 60 short stories, chosen to meet the requirements of the NLS at KS2... The most important thing is that these stories are worth reading in their own right, whatever literary objectives they contribute to. This means that as well as being a valuable classroom resource to sit on any primary teacher's desk, alongside The Poetry Store from the same publisher, this anthology deserves to find its way into the library and onto children's own bookshelves. (School Librarian)

Nikkie Gamble's new collection of stories, new and old, is designed to open reader's eyes and minds to the range of writing available-it's an invitation to dip a toe into previously untried literary waters. This collection contains something even for the most reluctant reader. (Unknown)

Impressive in its range of authors and writing styles ... An appealing and thoughtful collection, which, as well as being a valuable teaching tool, will provide children with hours of reading pleasure, and also whet their appetite to seek out other ttles by the authors represented. (Books for Keeps)

Book Description

A wonderful treasury of stories for teaching the National Literacy Strategy and for reading for pleasure

Format: Paperback
Great book to use both in literacy lessons and to fill time - the children love the stories. The cover doesn't do the content justice,

I have found this book really useful and I will contintue to use the book for some time. I am a teacher and the material, especially Michael Morpurgo has been practical but interesting for the children.
