For my rainforest topic I am trying to decide what novel to read to my Yr 4 class. I would appreciate feedback from anyone who has read these books to their class and how they have gone down. The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo Journey to River Sea by Eva Ibbotson Which would be the best to read to the class over the first half term? I'm concerned at the length of both Rynning Wild and Journey to the River Sea however is The Jungle Book too hard to grasp for the less able children? Which books are exciting for the children? Which will provide lots of opportunities to further their learning in other curriculum areas? Are there any other novels about the rainforest you can think of appropriate for this age group? I've got some picture books I plan to share at different points in the topic too. Thanks.
