This work provides practical guidelines for teachers who are beginning to implement the National Literacy Strategy at Key Stage 1 and 2. Using familiar picture books, the contributors show how learning objectives can be achieved through meaningful activities related to text. The picture books used are chosen to help teachers provide a range of interesting and attractive reading material for the literacy hour. They include popular stories, rhymes, myths and legends that represent a variety of different cultural traditions. Each title is outlined and a detailed description of activities at text, sentence and word level is provided, accompanied by photocopiable activity sheets.
