About the series
STORYLANDS is a reading scheme focusing on the needs of teachers of students in the first three years of school. The three broad levels in each STORYLANDS set - emergent, early and early-fluent - mean that there are books at different levels on the same theme. Your whole class can read great books with the same characters and theme, providing cohesion for teaching and for your students.
STORYLANDS is the heart of the reading experience with six exciting lands full of vibrant characters. The six STORYLANDS are Clinker Castle, Pirate Cove, Lost Island, Fantastic Forest, Circus Bizurkus and Larkin Street. The 30 richly-illustrated titles of each land are brought to life by a single extraordinary artist.
