Purple is Best - pack of 6

View preview
Purple is Best by Ruth Merttens. 

Purple is a book about colours and dyes. How did people dye their clothes in ancient Egypt? In Roman times?  What plants make good dyes?  Which dye was more expensive than gold?  Children read this book, seeing the colours as they go. 

Group Readers are short, illustrated books designed to be read with 3 to 6 children, working as a group.  They are sold cheaply at cost so that each child can have their own copy and can follow the text as it is read.  They are matched to the stages of learning phonics, from basic (linked to Code-Breakers Books 1 or 2) to more advanced (linked to Code-Breakers Book 4).  They can be used alongside any phonics scheme.
