Synopsis

Whales by Jill Atkins

All you need to know about whales is in this engaging read. Find out about whales without teeth, whale talk and whale dangers. Whales is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Gold Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 626-word non-fiction book is suitable for ages 7 - 8. Whales features a longer, more demanding text with extended vocabulary and sentence structures. It has wider vocabulary and terminology and the story-line is sustained for longer. More than one point of view is expressed and illustrations no longer support the text. Whales 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).
