Kingfisher Readers L3: Creepy Crawlies

Kingfisher Readers

by Anita Ganeri and Thea Feldman



Extent: 32pp, 50 to75 words per pageText at level 3 is simple and engaging with plenty of interest and repetition, with some more variety of language and information than level 2. Text introduces a few more challenging words and a wider variety of tenses.
Spiders and insects may be yucky, but they sure are interesting. From hissing cockroaches to bloodsucking leaches, this book about mini beasts is not for the faint of heart! The high-interest subject matter and outrageous facts presented in this early nonfiction chapter book is perfect for reluctant readers, and beginning readers starting to read alone proficiently.
