Collins Big Cat Arabic Reading Programme is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11.
The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins.
This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 13 books feature longer and more complex sentence structures.
Sentences make use of a wide range of stylistic features which reflect progression in the teaching of Arabic grammar.
Stories may also contain more literary, metaphorical language, including similes and other figurative language to help the reader create mental images, plus exaggeration for dramatic or humorous effect.
Non-fiction titles contain longer, more formal sentences and a broader range of unfamiliar terms. Find out more about some of the traditional instruments of the Arab world, including string instruments such as the Oud, wind instruments such as the Nay, and percussion instruments such as the Tabla drum.
