Ladybird: Adventure on the Island (10a)

£4.99

Product description

This is copy is a hardback matt finish. This is undated, however, it was first published in 1966. It does have a ISBN number so it is a later edition.

From the blurb;

"KEY WORDS...what they are and how they are used.

Some if the words in the English Language are used much more frequently than others. These words which appear more frequently can be called Key Words.

Research shows that twelve of these Key Words make up one quarter of all those we read and write. One hundred of them form half, and three hundred about three-quarters, of the total number of words found in juvenile reading. Reading Skill is accelerated if these important words are learned early and in a pleasant way.

The Ladybird Key Words Reading Scheme is based on these commonly used words. Those used most often in the English language are introduced first - with other words of popular appeal to children. All the Key Words list is covered in the early books, and the later titles use further word lists to develop full reading fluency. The total number of different words which will be learned in the complete reading scheme is nearly two thousand. The gradual introduction of these words, frequent repetition and complete "carry-over" from book to book, will ensure rapid learning.

The full colour illustrations have been designed to create a desirable attitude towards learning by making every child eager to read each title. Thus this attractive reading scheme embraces not only the latest findings in word frequency, but also the natural interests and activates of happy children.

Each book contains a list of the new words introduced."

Excellent pages with some edge-wear. The spine is worn and there is rubbing in the corners.
