Synopsis

A Light in the Forest by

Winter has come to the forest, but the forest animals live in fear of the hungry snow-wolf. The snowy owl has a solution - but will the other animals help? A beautiful parable for our times. A Light in the Forest is a book-banded reading book for more confident readers, carefully levelled at Lime Book Band. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 837-word fiction story features a more demanding text with extended vocabulary and literary devices. It is suitable for ages 8 - 9. A Light in the Forest 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).
