Kingfisher Readers L4: Flight (Kingfisher Readers - Level 4)by Chris Oxlade
Synopses & Reviews
Very few things capture the human imagination like flight. Starting with natural flyers such as birds and squirrels, and then progressing through the history of mans quest to take to the air, this book looks at all of the aspects of flight including different types of flying machines, important inventions, the forces on a plane, and the challenges of getting into space. At this reading level, the concept of primary and secondary text is introduced with a main body, image captions, and callout boxes for short features. A deeper glossary and index complete the book, making this a fun choice for emerging readers who dream of flying themselves.
LEVEL 4: READING
A greater variety of language and types of information than at level 3. More challenging vocabulary is introduced. Sentences remain clear, interesting, and unambiguous, but are slightly more complex.
