The Kite Rider Reading Guide

Valerie Peters

This Reading Guide is aimed at the student and offers a 'way in' to different aspects of the novel of the same title.

The Reading Guide is highly illustrated and has a magazine-feel to appeal to students. It can be used during the early stages of a Scheme of Work based on the novel, and can also be built in to lessons as the reading progresses and to support further reading activities.
