Samir lives in Jordan with his family. His family bakery is in Rainbow street and it is here that Samir spends most of his time after school. But his true love is for birds. He is fascinated by them, their different shapes and sizes, colours and movements and one day, he gets to see the bird of his dreams ...
Reading Champion offers independent reading books for children to practise and reinforce their developing reading skills.
Fantastic, original stories are accompanied by engaging artwork and a reading activity. Each book has been carefully graded so that it can be matched to a child's reading ability, encouraging reading for pleasure.
Lynne Rickards was born in Canada and now lives in Scotland with her husband and two children. She grew up writing and illustrating her own stories and actually went to art school at 18 to study illustration. However, she decided she was much happier writing the stories and loves to see artwork in her books, knowing it's so much better than anything she could ever have done.
