This story is part of Reading Champion, a series carefully linked to book bands to encourage independent reading skills, developed with Dr Sue Bodman and Glen Franklin of UCL Institute of Education (IOE)
This sweet and surprising story stars Meera, her parents and their back garden visitor, Spike the hedgehog. Meera loves when Spike comes to call in the evenings, but when she and the family have a big garden clear-out, will Spike still find the garden cosy enough for a wander?
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 a reading activity. Each book has been carefully graded so that it can be matched to a child’s reading ability, encouraging reading for pleasure.
