By Sam Hay
Illustrated by Daron Parton
An outstanding new range of first chapter books that helps children build their reading stamina and progress towards longer books
Race Ahead with Reading are fantastic colour chapter books.
When giant tumbleweeds blow into town, Cactus Joe and his friend Little Bo have lots of fun playing dodgeball. But then Little Bo gets trapped in a tumbleweed and it takes off! Cactus Joe knows he needs help to rescue Little Bo - so he asks his Uncle for some magic cactus juice - the problem is you never know quite what it's going to do!
Race Ahead with Reading is the perfect series to introduce children to longer books, help them gain a sense of achievement at completing each bite-size chapter and really take the driving seat with their reading! A brilliant way to boost confidence of 6-8 year old readers.
