Suitable for children in Year 1 (age 5), Nishal's Box is from the Cambridge Reading genre strand Stories about Fantasy Worlds, a strand has proven to be successful with children who are reluctant to read. Nishal's Box is one of nine books written and illustrated by John Prater. Each story in this set features a child who finds a large box. When the box is opened a fantasy character emerges (it's a hot, sunny day when Nishal finds a box in his garden, so Nishal's new friend take him somewhere very cool) and the child and the character have an adventure together, always with an amusing twist. Cambridge Reading at Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) offers fiction, non-fiction, poetry and plays to introduce children to a variety of text types, authors and illustrators and provide a firm base for wider reading. This pack of 6 is for guided group reading.
