Are Dragons Real? : Band 11+/Lime Plus Paperback / softback

Part of the Collins Big Cat series

Paperback / softback


Collins Big Cat supports every primary child on their reading journey from phonics to fluency.

Top authors and illustrators have created fiction and non-fiction books that children love to read.

Book banded for guided and independent reading, there are reading notes in the back, comprehensive teaching and assessment support and ebooks available. All around the world, people have been telling stories about dragons for thousands of years.

But where did these stories come from? Did dragons ever exist? Explore the history behind dragons and the creatures that helped create the dragon myths we still know today. Lime Plus/Band 11+ books provide challenging plots and vocabulary as well as opportunities to practise inference, prediction and reading stamina. Pages 46 and 47 allow children to re-visit the content of the book, supporting comprehension skills, vocabulary development and recall. Ideas for reading in the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities. Scientists explore and try to explain the things they are most interested in - whether it's plants or people, dogs or... dragons! Isabel wrote this book to explore how scientists have tried to explain dragons over the years, and in doing so, to show that being a scientist isn't about being the brainiest person in the room.

It's about curiosity, teamwork, and challenging old ideas.
