Example of text:-
'Once there was a little girl called Sophie, and she was having tea with her mummy in the kitchen.
Suddenly there was a ring at the door.
Sophie's mummy said,
"I wonder who that can be.
It can't be the milkman because he came this morning.
And it can't be the boy from the grocer because this isn't the day he comes.
And it can't be Daddy because he's got his key.
We'd better open the door and see."..........'
On the doorstep is a big, furry, stripy tiger.......who is terribly polite. And as he asks so nicely...........if he can have tea with Sophie and her mummy..... the latter agrees.
So the tiger comes into the kitchen and sits down at the table......but he is a VERY hungry tiger.........and a very thirsty one, too....as we find out as the pages turn!
A repeat element on the quantity the friendly tiger eats promotes that all important eagerness for the younger listener to join in with, giving lots of scope for interaction.
