Little Kids-Guided Reading Books
Cambridge University Press - June Crebbin
"Rigby Star" is a guided reading programme developed specifically to meet the requirements of the NLS. It offers stories and teaching support to help plan and manage guided reading lessons - all within a structured reading programme. Teaching versions offer support for every title, with prompts for discussing the story summary; preparing pupils for the "walkthrough", in which the pupils think about such clues to the book as the blurb, the cover image and title. The readers are part of a carefully levelled structure to help ensure that every child has the right book, at the right time. Every book has links to independent/group reading and writing activities. The scheme also offers support for follow-up and assessment, such as suggestions for further activities and assessment. There is a writing activity linked to every book.
Robinson Crusoe[a] (/?kru?so?/) is a novel by Daniel Defoe, first published on 25 April 1719. The first edition credited the work's protagonist Robinson Crusoe as its author, leading many readers to believe he was a real person and the book a travelogue of true incidents.
Epistolary, confessional, and didactic in form, the book is presented as an autobiography of the title character (whose birth name is Robinson Kreutznaer) – a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical desert island near the coasts of Venezuela and Trinidad (roughly resembling Tobago), encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers, before ultimately being rescued. The story has been thought to be based on the life of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish castaway who lived for four years on a Pacific island called "Más a Tierra" (now part of Chile) which was renamed Robinson Crusoe Island in 1966.:?23–24?
Despite its simple narrative style, Robinson Crusoe was well received in the literary world and is often credited as marking the beginning of realistic fiction as a literary genre. It is generally seen as a contender for the first English novel. Before the end of 1719, the book had already run through four editions, and it has gone on to become one of the most widely published books in history, spawning so many imitations, not only in literature but also in film, television, and radio, that its name is used to define a genre, the Robinsonade.
