Start Reading is a new series of highly enjoyable books for beginning readers at KS1. They have been carefully graded to correspond to the Book Bands now widely used in schools. This enables readers to be sure that they choose books that match their own ability. There is very careful and gentle graduation from Band to Band. The books can be shared with an adult or read independently. They promote the enjoyment of reading through reading real, satisfying stories with a beginning, a middle and an end. Down in the Jungle all the animals are in a spot of bother. Monty doesn't know what to eat, Flora's doesn't like her trunk, Lulu hates to sing and Spot is in a bad mood.
