Is our planet Earth the only place in the universe where there is life? Or could there be life on other planets? If so, where will we find it? On other planets? Mars? What do you need for life? How did life start? Did life on Earth start in space? Find out how weird life on Earth can be. Then read a great story about searching for life on alien planets: The Search for Life. Sometimes things just aren't as simple as they seem! 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.
