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 3 books introduce the concept of the 'story', and include simple phonic sounds and very high-frequency words with simple spellings. Follow baby bird as it learns how to fly for the first time. This beautifully-illustrated fiction story is written by leading children's book author-illustrator Petr Horacek. The flow chart on pages 14 and 15 allows children to discuss and recap baby bird's progress as he learns how to fly.
