My Famous Brother, Galileo (Engage Literacy Dark Red)

It’s the early 1600s, and the streets of Italy are bustling. But Michelangelo Galilei, the much younger brother of well-known Italian philosopher and scientist Galileo Galilei, feels lost in the crowd. It seems as though Michelangelo has nothing in common with his older brother. Michelangelo spends countless hours practising his lute, while his brother seems to spend all his time testing long-held scientific beliefs. Then Galileo improves a small telescope, opening up a whole new world to them both. But will it be enough to fill the expanse between them?

Graded readers, or reading programmes, are series of levelled books that help children to learn to read. As children progress up the levels they develop the skills to read more independently.

Engage Literacy is the new award-winning reading scheme from Raintree that introduces engaging and contemporary content to motivate and support early readers while providing a reliable and instructional framework. All titles are precisely levelled, with new vocabulary being introduced and reinforced throughout the levels.
