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).

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