Baker Street Readers

Introduce children to classic literature with these 54-page beautifully illustrated retellings which stay faithful to the originals. Following each story is a study guide helping students better grasp story content, including an explanation of the abridging, with some key points that might help fill in gaps potentially caused by that process. It then offers story and/or the author background and recommendations for additional reading, websites, and films to help the reader better understand the author. The Food for Thought section includes ‘starting points,’ ‘themes,’ and ‘style.’ Starting Points offers a few questions or points to ponder and discuss. Readers are asked their thoughts on a list of suggested themes . Style asks the reader to search for different literary elements within the story. In a fourth section, Symbols (included in Oliver Twist and Time Machine ), readers consider the symbolism listed there, and how it is used in the story. Start building your library with this lovely abridged classic collection. 63pgs, hc. ~ Donna
