Read at Home Book and CD for all original story titles read by Martin Jarvis
The CD will be in a plastic envelope inside the back cover of the storybook. The story will be read once through for expression and enjoyment and then read again for children to read along at the same time. A sound would signal page turns. There will be a short introduction to the story to think about the cover and what the story will be about and the puzzle activity will be pointed out. The Think About questions will be read at the end.
