Icarus - pack of 6

View preview

Icarus by Ruth Merttens is a simple re-telling of the Greek myth of Icarus. In this tale Icarus and his father Daedalus build marvellous wings to escape from their prison but as they escape Icarus flies too close to the sun. The simple but engaging illustrations with the story will help bring it alive to children experiencing this traditional myth for the first time.

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.
