Collins Arabic Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11. The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins. This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 14 books build on level 13 by offering stories with more complex plots and with a greater number of chapters to encourage the development of reading stamina. Non-fiction texts use complex vocabulary and deal with challenging global themes. The style of language further reflects progression in the teaching of Arabic grammar, while still using largely familiar vocabulary and simplified concepts. This non-fiction report and explanation focuses on the fascinating business of using scaffolding - from its earliest origins to present-day. Children can find out how scaffolding is used in a variety of ways around the world, and meet a young scaffold-builder. The book includes a comprehensive glossary on pages 30 and 31 to aid comprehension.
