Abby the Acrocat (Reading Stars)
By: Alan Durant (author)Paperback
Abby's family are all burglars. But Abby thinks that robbing is wrong. She wants to be an acrocat. Can she make her dreams come true? Abby the Acrocat is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Turquoise Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 715-word fiction story is suitable for ages 6 - 7. Abby the Acrocat features a longer, more demanding text with an extended vocabulary. It uses punctuation and layout to encourage reading with expression. It had more complex words and formal sentences and there are complex events. Abby the Acrocat 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).
