What is a life cycle? A butterfly goes through four stages in its life. It changes into something different each time. It starts as a tiny egg, and later it becomes a chrysalis. More changes happen inside the chrysalis, until at last a beautiful butterfly is ready to fly away.
Series editor and author of the Red Rocket reading program, Pam Holden has more than 30 years specialist experience in literacy. As a Reading Recovery teacher she has worked one-to-one with hundreds of children struggling with literacy. Pam's pupils have also included those approaching English as a second language, and children who are advanced and require extension. This experience has given the author a rare insight into the literacy process and has enabled her to identify many key elements that consistently block children's progress.
