The Rescue is the story of a boating accident as told by five of the people involved. The five chapters are written in the first person in simple, short sentences. The people telling the story, a family of four and a member of the lifeboat’s crew, describe how the boat trip came about during a holiday in Devon and why the three who went out in the boat had to be rescued.
The Rescue has a vocabulary of about 360 different words. Although the text is simple, with plenty of word repetition, the topic is adult and relevant to all ages and the story should appeal to students of a wide range of ability. This book may not be photocopied.
A companion book of photocopiable exercises to improve reading, spelling and writing skills is available separately.
