Details

A bouncy, rhyming tale by Jill Lewis for Egmont's blue banana series. This is the vine, knitted in twine, made by Jack's grandma in double quick time, that swings from the tree (two metres tall), made out of cardboard and wood in the hall...that holds up the coconut Jack made. Year One's homework is to make something for the jungle display. That evening most of the class are cutting and gluing, painting and drawing. But Jack thinks it's far more fun to play football. So he gets some modelling clay, rolls it into a ball and hey presto! It's a coconut. But Jack's family don't feel this is quite enough. So, Dad makes a tree and Grandma knits a vine, Mum makes a snake and little Fred donates a stuffed parrot. Soon it's a glorious palm tree, worthy of a place among the jungle huts, anteaters, birds and giant millipedes the others have made. They take it to school, but oh no! The water pipes burst and flood the hall where the jungle display is. What will happen to everyone's work? Told in bouncy rhyming couplets, this witty story is perfect for developing readers. Blue bananas are chapter books for children learning to read, suitable for NC Level 2 readers. They are carefully designed educational books for children, supporting their understanding of how to read and develop vocabulary. Blue bananas uses speech bubbles to aid understanding of dialogue and the text encourages children to explore the feelings of characters.
