A major reading scheme for the teaching of reading and the development of literacy throughout the primary years. Suitable for children in Year 2 (age 6), Coyote Girl is from the Cambridge Reading genre strand Stories from a Range of Cultures. This set of nine stories contain a variety of language and illustration styles, reflecting the myths, legends, folk tales and fairy stories of the many different cultures from which they were taken. Coyote Girl, written by Rosalind Kerven and illustrated by Amanda Hall, comes from the Hopi people of Arizona, USA. It tells the story of how the spiteful Yellow Corn Maiden uses a magic spell to turn the Blue Corn Maiden into a coyote. Cambridge Reading at Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) offers fiction, non-fiction, poetry and plays to introduce children to a variety of text types, authors and illustrators and provide a firm base for wider reading.
