Synopsis

Rio Ferdinand by Andy Croft

Stimulating and accessible, the titles in the LIVEWIRE series have been produced in association with The Basic Skills Agency to ensure a non-patronising approach towards the requirements of readers with special needs. They provide teenagers/adult interest level fiction and non-fiction for those with reading ages below 10, or adult students learning English as a second language. Each book is graded at one of the following reading ages: 6-7, 7-8, 8-9 or 9-10. All LIVEWIRE books are written by qualified Special Needs teachers, and are expertly assessed and subtly colour-coded for the appropriate reading age. The books in the LIVEWIRE REAL LIVES strand contain fascinating stories of popular music stars, famous historical figures, Hollywood actors, TV personalities and top sports people. Rio Ferdinand is the story of this famous football star's rise to the top.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
