Reading Stars Plus is Ransom's new reading programme to support older, struggling readers. It is a structured programme with systematic progression, for children who have fallen behind. The Reading Stars Plus books are all high interest age, low reading age books, with an interest age of 9-13 years. The programme follows the same structure as Ransom Reading Stars, but focuses on the ten lowest levels, where the need for books of this type is greatest: the four phonics levels covering Phases Two to Five of the Letters and Sounds programme, followed by six Book Bands - Pink through to Orange. The series includes Fiction and non-fiction titles with strong boy and girl appeal across the range. The series fresh and modern with strong illustrations and topics and stories which are multicultural and inclusive.
