In this story, Arit has a dream in which she grows bigger and bigger...and her mamma grows smaller and smaller! About the Author Buchi Otung was born and grew up in Nigeria.

About JAWS Starters JAWS Starters are simple books for young readers. The series provides interesting and beautifully illustrated stories to encourage children to read for pleasure. Jaws Starters books are at four levels, starting with Wordbooks at the foundation level. Level 1 is for children who have just begun to read by themselves, whilst Levels 2 and 3 use progressively wider vocabulary and more complex sentence structures. The language in each of the books has been carefully controlled at each level to make reading easier. JAWS Starters have pictures on every page to help the pupils follow the story. At level 1, pupils can follow the story from the pictures alone. Children can read JAWS Starters silently, either in class or at home.
There are activities at the end of each book, on page 16, which pupils can be asked to complete after they have read the story. If a word in an African language is used in the story, there will be a note of its meaning on this page too.
