Good design is not just about how things look – it’s also about how they are made, how they work and what they do. Technology plays a big part in design. In the past century, new technology has helped people to create many products, using new materials and processes. Everyday objects such as chairs and appliances, houses, public spaces and packaging have all benefited from good design. Emerald level (equivalent to the Lime bridging book band) provides a variety of chapter books and non-fiction titles. Readers are encouraged to experience different text types, writing styles and genres to develop their own reading tastes. For children who prefer to read non-fiction texts, the PM Plus Non-fiction titles offer carefully researched information thematically linked to key learning areas. The texts are supported with superb photography and realistic illustrations.
