Where do bats live? Can they really 'see' with their ears? Can bats hurt us? Bats is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Green Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 176-word n-fiction book is suitable for ages 5 - 6. Bats features a longer, less strctured text with a more extended vocabulary. It has more varied and longer sentences, repetition, and includes made-up words. Story events are longer and there are more words on each page. Bats 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).
