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 5 books are for children who are ready to read stories with more challenging word patterns or non-verbal sentences with 2 or 3 words, and with total support through illustrations and extensive use of repetition. Double spacing is used between words to ensure children see where each new word in a sentence begins and ends to ensure the focus remains on reading core words. Featuring a variety of cars, this photographically illustrated book cues children to identify different types of car by colour. Each left hand page shows the car in close-up while the text cues the colour, and the right hand page shows the car in action, driving along a road or tearing around a Grand Prix circuit. A final double page spread shows all of the colours clearly labelled to help children recap.
