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).

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.
