Synopsis

The Secret Egg by John Townsend

Finding something strange on the bus leads to a secret egg hatching. What can it be? Told entirely in verse, The Secret Egg is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Purple Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 362-word rhyming story is suitable for ages 7 - 8. The Secret Egg features a more demanding text with an extended vocabulary. With a wider vocabulary, the characters are more three dimensional, and illustrations are less important. It encourages more independent reading. The Secret Egg 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).
