Richard Whittington was Lord Mayor of London in 1397, 1406 and 1419, in reigns of Henry IV and Henry V. The familiar story about his early struggles as a boy in London was not written down for another two centuries. No one knows which parts of the tale are true and which are embroidery. Set in London and Morocco about 1370.
Silver level titles (equivalent to the White bridging book band) use sentences with two or three clauses and the length of the texts extends to around 1000 words to help build reading stamina. Real-life problems are also introduced to encourage empathy.
Available for Levels 15–24, PM Traditional Tales and Plays retell classic tales in a simplified language and form that children can understand. Teachers use the tales in guided reading sessions and children can later read them with confidence and understanding. Parts are colour-coded for easy recognition.
