'Based on a fable by Aesop'.
This particular book is: LEVEL TWO.
From the back cover:-
'Tortoise is jealous of Eagle. He wants to fly too. So he decides to try......'
Attractive and durable board covers open to 32 high quality pages, in the popular 2-page spread format.
Illustrated throughout, by Eugenia Nobati - with lots of things to spot in the pictures - this book is further enhanced by meaningful facial expressions. Numbered pages, with clear, easy-to-read text and some speech bubbles, the latter sometimes capitalised for emphasis. There is even a pale green ribbon marker to keep your place!
This book also has the added dimension of a simple 3-puzzle section starting on page 26 with an ordering puzzle, followed by a descriptive word choosing exercise and a find the objects in the picture challenge!
The answers follow, and a note 'About the Story' (the moral) winds up the book.
Example of text:-
'This is a story about a tortoise.
He had everything a tortoise could want.
He had a lovely log to sit on,
juicy apples to eat
and a very shiny shell.
But he wasn't happy.........'
Awww! The poor little tortoise wishes he could be like the eagle high above, and fly to dizzy heights.....but what cost is such happiness?
Surprisingly low, as it turns out!
