Synopsis

Dragon Island by Maggie Freeman

Uncle Jim brings Alex and Flora a present from America. It's a green stone - but it's a magic island too, and takes Alex and Flora on a magic journey to Dragon Island. Dragon Island is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Turquoise Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 607-word fiction story is suitable for ages 6 - 7. Dragon Island features a longer, more demanding text with an extended vocabulary. It uses punctuation and layout to encourage reading with expression. It had more complex words and formal sentences and there are complex events. Dragon Island 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).
