Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0199173885, Paperback)The Literacy Web non-fiction information books are suitable for guided, shared or independent reading and offer cross-curricular links. The books exemplify the different text types required by the National Literacy Strategy - persuasion, discussion, reports, instructions, reference and recount (biography). "Living on the Edge" is in the form of a report and shows how people cope with living in extreme environmental conditions. It contrasts frozen and hot deserts, mountain life and water environments. The other titles include "Two African Countries" (report) - a comparison of Ghana and Botswana, two countries with contrasting landscapes, climates, cultures and histories; "Countries of the World" (alphabetic reference) - offering interesting facts and figures on each country alongside maps, photographs and facts about people of diverse lands; and "Red Adair" (recount/biography) - an exciting recount of this modern hero's lifelong fight against oil fires, and his poverty-stricken background, plus more technical information about firefighting.
