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).

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 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

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