Ransom Reading Stars

Ransom Reading Stars is a fresh and contemporary reading programme. It provides a modern, structured range of beautifully illustrated fiction and non-fiction titles that all children will find engaging and enjoyable to read. The series starts with simple phonics-based texts, for phases 1 to 5 of Letters and Sounds, to support the very early stages of reading. It then progresses on to book band levels with titles from Pink through to Lime.

Further practice is available to support struggling readers. Colourful catch-up programmes consisting of Goal!, Reading Stars Plus, and Neutron Stars provide age-appropriate titles with lower ability text. They cover a wide range of topics to ensure students foster a lifelong love of reading.
