This brilliant series provides teachers with a wide variety of genres, both fiction and non-fiction, which will allow children to access, interpret and understand what they are reading.
- It increases the child's knowledge and understanding of why certain words are chosen by an author

The five thinking and reasoning skills contained in the book are:
- Literal thinking
- Deductive reasoning
- Inferential skills
- Evaluative assessment of texts
