The Baobab Tree
The classic African folktale retold for beginner readers ready to tackle slightly more complicated storylines and sentence structures. When the gods create a talking tree, they soon regret it because it won’t be quiet. So they turn it upside down and bury its head in the dirt. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton. Includes several pages of reading-related puzzles.
