The thirsty tree is on top of the hill under the hot sun. There is
no water for the tree to drink and its leaves are yellow and
thirsty, too. The tree asks Cloudbreak, a little bird with a sharp
beak for help. Along with the wind’s help Cloudbreak finds a cloud
and gets some water for the tree. Helbling Young Readers is an
exciting new series of graded readers for Primary Schools in 5
levels. Engaging stories with beautiful full-colour illustrations,
specially written to appeal to young learners of English, introduce
high-frequency words in order to promote fluency from an early age.
Each story is carefully graded and language is presented both as
lexical groups and language functions. Accompanying Interactive
Whiteboard compatible CD-ROMs include a complete reading of the
story, chants and games and link to the Young Readers website. All
materials use an open type font which has been devised to help
children with reading difficulties.
