"Read at Home" is a new series designed for young, beginner readers. It features all the popular "Oxford Reading Tree" characters in 12 exciting stories specially written for parents to support their children's reading at home. These entertaining stories, with real life and fantasy adventures, are carefully graded across 4 levels, and contain vocabulary repetition and gradual progression within each level, from Book A to Book C. "The Snowman" is Level 1a (c.f. "Funny Fish") for children who are getting ready to read - those children who can recognize their own name, match some words and recognize some letter sounds. The story has a high degree of patterning and vocabulary repetition with one sentence per page. The approximate ORT level is stage 1+.
