particular appeal to girls. Each story has around 1200 - 1500 words
Donna has always dreamt of riding, but her family could never afford to buy her any lessons. So when Lu, who would rather spend time at the shopping center, is given some for her birthday, the Sisters decide to pull the oldest trick in the book. But can they keep the double act going forever?
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.
