The main objective of this supplementary reader is to promote
among learners the habit of reading independently with interest,
understanding and enjoyment. It seeks to enable them to read
independently in the sense that they would not expect the book
to be taken up page by page in the classroom. They would
rather read it on their own and later share and confirm
their responses and appreciation with the teacher and the peer
group through discussions, questions and, wherever possible,
even role-play.
The book contains eleven pieces. Each piece has been divided
into two or three manageable sections, each section briefly
summarised in point form without revealing crucial turns and twists
of the storyline, thus sustaining readers? curiosity and interest.
While-reading ?Comprehension Check,? given at the end of sections,
is a recall of what has been read and understood so far.
This format is being tried to make comprehension easier and
concentration keener. Each piece is also followed by a set of
questions as aids to understanding and, at many places, topics
for discussion in groups. Points under ?Think it Over? are largely
such quotations as have a direct bearing on the theme of the
story. Some quotations may not be immediately comprehensible
to learners. Teachers may therefore want to play a direct role in
explaining, simplifying or paraphrasing lines/topics and suggest
appropriate sub-topics to facilitate a focussed discussion in small
groups. All questions should be attempted orally before well-
formulated answers are put down on paper. Discussion on
related topics should be encouraged so that learners get an
opportunity to go beyond the book and feel inspired to reach
hitherto undiscovered vistas of knowledge and pleasure.
The stories, amply illustrated, deal with themes of
cooperation, compassion, respect and love for flora and fauna,
sound decision-making, science fiction, education, peace and
harmony. It is hoped that young readers will find the book
enjoyable and rewarding, and will feel motivated to read
extensively on their own to become proficient readers in the
years to come.
