It's the first-ever World's Cup, and it's taking place on the Moon. Earth play Mars in the final. Can Earth win the Cup? Soccer Stars is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Gold Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 465-word story is suitable for ages 7 - 8. Soccer Stars features a longer, more demanding text with extended vocbulary and sentence structures. It has wider vocabulary and terminology and the story-line is sustained for longer. More than one point of view is expressed and illustrations no longer support the text. Soccer Stars 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).
