The Magic Gifts
This title is a new addition to “Young Reading Series One”, part of the Usborne Young Reading Programme, based on the Chinese myth. It is aimed at children just beginning to read to help build confidence and ability. When three brothers inherit their father’s fortune, greedy Ying and Yong keep it all for themselves, leaving poor Chin to live a simple life. But Chin’s act of kindness to a mysterious monk leads to a magical reward. This title is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University. It features beautifully produced hardback with ribbon marker to encourage pride in book ownership.
