A lovely animal story about friendship and celebrating differences from Sue Mayfield for Egmont's green banana series. Best friends Toucan, Giraffe and Penguin all have something special about them but it takes the others to point it out. Giraffe feels he is too tall, Penguin wants to fly, and Toucan is embarrassed by his big yellow beak. But they discover that they can use their differences to help their friends. Green bananas are divided into short, simple stories to develop reading techniques over a number of sessions. They are suitable for NC Level 1 readers. Green Bananas are carefully designed with education in mind, supporting children's understanding of how to read longer books. Green bananas only use one clause in each sentence and rely on dialogue and speech bubbles to encourage reading aloud.
