Reader reviews

Robinson Crusoe made easily accessible for 6/7 year olds
A super attempt to capture the adventurous spirit of Defoe's epic masterpiece. Simplified to suit the reader, it includes fronted adverbials, commas to list and ?/!; this makes it an ideal book for whole class study in Y2. It interests all children, especially those difficult to entice boys. As a Y2 teacher, I would certainly recommend this text.
