What are rainbows? What makes a rainbow? Where can you see them? And is there really gold at the end of a rainbow? Rainbows is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Orange Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 230-word non-fiction book is suitable for ages 6 - 7.
Rainbows features a longer, less structured text with a more extended vocabulary. More literary language is used with more complex sentence structures. More space is allowed for text than for pictures.
Rainbows 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).
