Year 3 Reading Challenge

Jumanji cover

Judy heard a faint buzzing noise and watched a small insect land on Peter’s nose. Peter lifted his hand to brush the bug away, but then stopped, gave a tremendous yawn, and fell sound asleep, his head on the table.

“Peter, Peter, wake up!” cried Judy. But it was no use. She grabbed the dice and moved to a blank. She rolled again and waited in amazement.

“Rhinoceros stampede, go back two spaces.”

As fast as he has fallen asleep, Peter awoke. Together they listened to a rumble in the hallway. It grew louder and louder. Suddenly a herd of rhinos charged through the living room and into the dining room, crushing all the furniture in their path. Peter and Judy covered their ears as sounds of splintering wood and breaking china filled the house.

Peter gave the dice a quick tumble.

“Python sneaks into camp, go back one space.” Judy shrieked and jumped up on her chair!
