National Geographic Readers: Queen Elizabeth II
by: Mary Quattlebaum
ALL HAIL THE QUEEN! Visit castles, meet princes and princesses, attend a royal wedding, and travel the world through the story of Queen Elizabeth II of England.
This Level 3 Reader tells the true story of a girl who never thought she would be queen. Readers meet Princess Elizabeth as a child playing with her favorite corgis and pony and follow the young woman who assumes the throne at age 25 and becomes one of the most famous, and longest reigning, queens in history.
National Geographic Readers have been a hit in the leveled reader category, and this book follows upon that success with the same combination of careful text, brilliant photographs, and fun approach to the high-interest biographies that has proved to be a winning formula with kids. The level 3 text provides accessible yet wide-ranging information for independent readers.
In this real-life fairy tale, explore the early life, coronation, and years of service and achievements of one of the world’s most loved and respected monarchs.
