Book Band: Turquoise Ideal for ages 6+
There’s a warm-hearted, creative, independent little girl at the centre of this story and beginner readers will really enjoy following her adventure. Cavegirl Aggie wants to get a special present for her mum’s birthday and when she hears that a villager has found a piece of amber, she knows it will make the perfect gift. She carefully works out how to make something to trade for the amber, and everything goes to plan until a surprise encounter with a wild boar. There are two more twists in the plot before the happy ending, one of them told entirely through the pictures. Short chapters, a lively storyline plus lots of bright, attractive pictures make this an excellent book for children ready to read on their own. Part of Bloomsbury’s Young Readers series, specially designed with this audience in mind, it also features useful tips and discussion points for adults sharing the book with children.
Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. They are packed with gorgeous colour illustrations and include inside cover notes to help adults reading with children, as well as ideas for activities related to the stories.
