Synopsis

The Best Present Ever by Stephen Rickard

Raj is ill and cannot go to school. He is bored at home, until his mum gives him a present. Raj thinks it is the best present ever. What can it be? The Best Present Ever is a book-banded reading book for early readers, carefully levelled at Blue Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 266-word fiction story is suitable for ages 5 - 6. The Best Present Ever features a longer, less structured text with a more flexible vocabulary. There is variation in sentence patterns and content, little repetition, and longer language patterns. It has a full range of punctuation. The Best Present Ever is part of Ransom Reading Stars, a structured programme for children learning to read. The series has fifteen levels: four phonics levels and eleven book band levels (Pink through to Lime).
