Inside All Graded Readers (5)
Some people in the world of sport are heroes only because they are the best at their sport. But the sportsmen and sportswomen in this book - Oscar Pistorius, Michael Phelps, Wilma Rudolph and Natalie du Toit - are all that and much more. All of them went through bad times and learned to be stronger people through sport. Because it isn't living through good times, but living through bad times that makes you into a true hero!
Once 'green' was just a colour. Now we use it to talk about a way of looking at our world and thinking about the environment. But how green is our planet today?
From nuclear power plants to Nemo the clownfish, from polar bears to pesticides, from Greenpeace to global warming, this book brings together many different stories that have made environmental history.
Read it, and perhaps you too can help to make our planet greener!
