Description

Meet the WW2 soldier who never surrendered. Hiroo Onoda came from a Samurai family, he became a Japanese hero. The Last Soldier is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Orange Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this nonfiction title is suitable for ages 13+.

 

The Last Soldier features a longer, less structured text with a more extended vocabulary. More literary language is used with more complex sentence structures. More space is allowed for text than for pictures.
