Book Band: Lime Ideal for ages 6+
This new series from Bloomsbury Education is geared at turning children into independent readers. Not only will the books give youngsters a boost into solo reading, they’ll also make it easier and more enjoyable for the adults helping children as they come with useful tips and notes. The books are short and divided into chapters thereby breaking the story into manageable chunks. The adventures are lively and fast-moving though told via short sentences and carefully chosen vocabulary: some words are highlighted in the Tips for Grown Ups section on the inside cover, so that children can learn them and their meanings. Full colour illustrations amplify the action and make the books really attractive to look at too. Written by favourite authors, these are well worth collecting and are just the thing for children ready for reading.
Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. They are packed with gorgeous colour illustrations and include inside cover notes to help adults reading with children, as well as ideas for activities related to the stories.
On a school trip to the space museum, Reva and Bobby climb into a real rocket named Jupiter Two. The poor rocket has never been into space so when Reva and Bobby count down and press a big red button, Jupiter Two bursts into life. Soon Reva and Bobby are on their way to the moon! This extraordinary and imaginative adventure from well-loved author Jenny McLachlan is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1. It features engaging illustrations from Andy Rowland and quirky characters young readers will find hard to resist.
Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation, [with] tips to support the parent or carer at home or the teacher who needs inspiration at the end of a busy day. - Julie-Ann McCulloch, Specialist EAL Teacher, Stockport Local Authority
My favourite character was Reva because she was curious and my favourite part was when they went to space. - Kiaan, aged 6
This is called Zoom to the Moon. I liked this bit because they were about to go up into space. - Ben, aged 5

Jenny McLachlan spent thirteen years of her life teaching English: a job that combined her passion for the written word with her passion for showing off. It also provided her with the inspiration for her books. In the summer of 2014 she became a fulltime writer. Jenny lives by the seaside with her husband and two small but fierce girls. In addition to writing, she enjoys exploring the South Downs, running and, if it will embarrass her husband enough, jiving in any vaguely suitable situation.More About Jenny McLachlan
