World of Discovery Collection (Level B Set 1)
The World of Discovery Collection is a specially curated selection of children's books that focus on discovering Asia and discovering STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Under the guidance of Dr Ruth Y L Wong, these books aim to promote reading for pleasure, while exciting kids through discovery. With 51 books in this inaugural batch, and with more to come, the books are divided into three levels depending on the child's reading ability: A (Achieving), B (Blooming) and C (Confident). Level B Set 1 features nine titles, exploring themes of science, imagination, nature and global stories.
Level B is for children who are able to follow a text when it is being read aloud, and sound out at least 70% of the words in the book. Level B is split into two sets, Level B Set 1 and Level B Set 2.
Intended outcomes of Level B include teaching children to be able to:
- follow a text when it is being read aloud
- turn the page at the right time
- sound out at least 70% of the words in the book
- read simple sentences
- enjoy being read to
Each book includes a story-based activity at the end of the books to help parents and educators get children to engage with the story.
