Collins Arabic Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11. The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins. This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 13 books feature longer and more complex sentence structures. Sentences make use of a wide range of stylistic features which reflect progression in the teaching of Arabic grammar. Stories may also contain more literary, metaphorical language, including similes and other figurative language, to help the reader create mental images, plus exaggeration for dramatic or humorous effect. Nonfiction titles contain longer, more formal sentences and a broader range of unfamiliar terms. Nawal the goat's brother is good at jumping. Nawal's sister is good at leaping. Nawal is good at growing sunflowers. But when she meets a big, fierce lion, Nawal finds out she's good at something else, too! A humorous fantasy story by renowned children’s author Vivian French.
