Synopsis

Birth and Death of a City Settlement Patterns by Elizabeth Raum

Fusion is a high-interest, non-fiction range that has been carefully designed to appeal to struggling pupils. Strong images encourage readers to engage with curriculum topics - and lively text with a low reading level (age 7) ensures that the concepts are clear and accessible to everyone. It contains fascinating content and carefully levelled text, which means that every child will find a book they want to read and can read. Each book delivers a curriculum requirement or key topic so struggling readers cover the same ground as their peers. It includes free teacher support notes.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
