Have you ever been in a car when it goes through a car wash? What did you hear and see? What was wiping and rubbing on the sides and the windows? Did you see frothy bubbles and splashing water? How did the car move?
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.
