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).

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