Synopsis

Late for the Party by Alice Hemming

Alfie needs to get ready for Lily's party. His mum tries to help, but somehow everything starts to go wrong. Will Alfie be late for the party? Late for the Party is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Green Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 262-word fiction story is suitable for ages 5 - 6. Late for the Party features a longer, less structured text with a more extended vocabulary. It has more varied and longer sentences, no repetition, and includes made-up words. Story events are longer and there are more words on each page. Late for the Party 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).
