This story is part of Reading Champion, a series carefully linked to book bands to encourage independent reading skills, developed with Dr Sue Bodman and Glen Franklin of UCL Institute of Education (IOE). This book is aimed at Independent Reading 12, for readers aged 7 years old and up, or in the second half of Year 3.
Mia and her dad have moved from their home in a warm climate, to a very, very cold one. The one thing Mia is looking forward to is seeing snow for the first time. Little does she know there will be snow and much more – including some magic!
