A baby whale is stranded on a beach after an oil spill. It is hot
and the whale can’t breathe. Lots of people come to look but no-one
knows what to do until Rawiri arrives. Rawiri has got a plan. Is
his plan good enough to save the whale? 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.
