Avoid Sailing with Francis Drake by David Stewart
Book DescriptionThis descriptive text provides an interesting insight into exploration in the 16th century including: what it was like on board ship; the weather conditions you would have to face; the dangers of exploring unchartered waters and unknown lands; what Francis Drake was like; and the acts of piracy committed during the voyage. The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like sailing with Francis Drake. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers. This work fits into Key Stage 2 history and is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for Key Stage 2 pupils within the framework of the National Literacy Strategy. It also helps to achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
