Suitable for children in Year 2 (age 6), Animal Communication is one of nine books from the Cambridge Reading non-fiction strand. This strand has been designed to introduce young readers to information retrieval skills. Animal Communication explains why animals need to communicate, and looks at the variety of ways in which they do so. With the aid of beautiful colour photographs, amusing illustrations and a clear, straightforward text, children read about animals that communicate using sound, colour, movement, smell or light. The book's activity boxes encourage children to try out some different forms of communication for themselves. Cambridge Reading at Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) includes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and plays to offer children a variety of text types, authors and illustrators and provide a firm base for wider reading.
