What are primary colours? What are secondary colours? Are there really warm colours and cold colours? You can find all the answers in this book. Colours is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Orange Book Band. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 302-word non-fiction book features a longer, less structured text with a more extended vocabulary. It is suitable for ages 6 - 7. Colours 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 because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

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