Synopsis

Football by David Orme

Football explores the world's favourite game and includes a football timeline. The hilarious fiction story 'Rob of the Rovers' shows what happens when players are too good. Football is part of the Trailblazers series, published by Ransom Publishing. It is ideal for older children and young adults with a reading age of 5-8. The books are suitable for general reading or as part of a more structured reading programme. Each book is on a strong, popular topic, with a colourful, attractive layout, combining fact and fiction. Each book has a non fiction and a fiction section. The fiction story appears in two formats - one with simple texts for poor readers; the facing pages contain an illustrated speech bubble version of the same story, for those who are just starting to learn to read. These two levels of entry give access points for children and young adults with different reading ages. The vocabulary of each book is carefully limited, with simple sentences to reinforce reading skills, which make the books suitable for even the poorest readers.
