The Siti's Sisters books are a series of multicultural fiction books designed to have particular appeal to girls. Each story has around 1200 - 1500 words
Kelly and Lu are camping in Wales; they're going rock climbing. Then they find that they're sharing with girls they don't really get on with. And then it starts to rain - really rain. Can things get any worse?
The Siti's Sisters books are a series of multicultural fiction books designed to have particular appeal to girls. Each story has around 1200 - 1500 words and is ideal for reluctant readers. The books are designed to appeal to girls aged 10 - 14 with a reading age of 7 - 8 years.
Siti has four really, really good mates: Donna, Lu, Kelly and Rachel. They have been friends forever and are so close that Siti calls them her Sisters; and that's how they think of themselves. The books are illustrated in black-and-white throughout, and the tightly controlled vocabulary and compelling, convincing stories will stimulate reading amongst poorer readers.
