We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
This colourful series is a welcome addition to any primary school library collection. Aimed at years two and three it contains great pictures and photographs covering the warriors of Ancient Greece. The images are supported by clear, bold text but not too much that it becomes overwhelming for students. The first page has a useful timeline from 776BC to the 2000s where the author has written ‘2000s You are reading this book’.
Many photographs take up most of the page and include a small amount of accompaning bold text which makes the book a very accessable read. It’s a good selling point and the series will be a winner for most junior classes wanting to study this aspect of ancient Greece but at the appropriate level.
