The author is noted for her work in "modelling", in which the reader translates ideas from words into pictorial form (eg maps, graphs, diagrams) and back again. Sue Sheldon's studies show that children who can use these techniques make significant improvements in thinking and in comprehension. This book makes these techniques available to children. It introduces characters which help children to understand and record the information in texts and diagram. Young reader are thus given a new approach to comprehension. The book also contains photocopiable pages for worksheet material and a photocopiable record sheet. It is designed for children from age six up to the first years of secondary school.
