Under the Bed

A Picture Book by

Perfect for children learning to read, this is a wonderful story about facing fears as a family from Anne Fine, a former Children's Laureate whose awards include the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Book Prize. There's never been anything scary under the bed since I was born, and there is nothing scary now. I really believe that. I keep believing it for about five minutes. Then I get less sure. Mum, Dad, Harry and Nana are at their wits' end. How can they prove to Toby that there are no monsters under the bed, so that they can finally get some sleep? Will a new bicycle help? Or a magic spell? Or does this call for something completely different...? The Reading Ladder series helps children to enjoy learning to read. It features well-loved authors, classic characters and favourite topics, so that children will find something to excite and engage them in every title they pick up. It's the first step towards a lasting love of reading. Level 2 Reading Ladder titles are perfect for readers who are growing in confidence and are beginning to enjoy longer stories. It features: clear type; up to 8 lines per page; bright, appealing pictures for added interest; a variety of sentence structures; a wider range of vocabulary; and, strong themes and characters to discuss. All Reading Ladder titles are developed with a leading literacy consultant, making them perfect for use in schools and for parents keen to support their children's reading. Book band: Purple.
