When Brown Cow visits the circus, she ends up stepping in for the clown who hasn't turned up for work. She slips, trips, drops things and loses her hat, and thinks that she's done a pretty bad job - but the ringmaster is thrilled. A lively story, specially written to develop phonemic awareness, this book is ideal for reading aloud and for children who are beginning to read for themselves. Simple, phonically repetitive text is a great way to develop essential language and early reading skills, and guidance notes are included to give parents confidence as they help their child learn to read.
