Collins Arabic Big Cat 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 16 books offer more complex, underlying themes that give opportunities for children to understand causes and points of view. A wide range of language structures is used to reflect progression in the teaching of Arabic grammar, while still retaining the core aim of encouraging a love of reading through Arabic stories and texts. Samira has a problem. The ostrich eggs at a nearby farm are being stolen. Without them her father can't do his famous musical performance, and the farm will have to be sold. Who's stealing the eggs, and why do they want them?
