The Life of the Desert Level 15

Author: Anita Ganeri Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/04/2020

Collins Big Cat Arabic Reading Programme is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11.

The sandy desert of the Arabian peninsular stretches for hundreds of kilometres in every direction. It may seem hard to believe that anything can live in this hot, dry land, but many different living things call it home.
