Amy Johnson likes a challenge. She'd like to prove she is one of the best pilots there is. It's 1930 and she is attempting to be the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia. Can she make it and prove her doubters wrong?
This first colour chapter book is a perfectly levelled, accessible text for readers aged 10-11 or in year 6. Reading Champion offers independent reading books for children to practise and reinforce their developing reading skills.
Fantastic, original stories are accompanied by engaging artwork and activities to provoke deeper response and encourage writing. Each book has been carefully graded so that it can be matched to a child's reading ability, encouraging reading for pleasure.
