Product description

Comets investigates topics such as 'Meterorites from Mars' and the end of the dinosaurs. In the science fiction story 'Doom from Space' planet Earth is threatened by a massive comet. Comets 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.

Review quote

"They are strong and colourful, with layouts that leap off the page and draw the reluctant reader in. Each page is a new layout, a new set of colours, a new experience; just perfect for those readers with very low attention spans." - ABC Magazine - Sussex, Summer 2006. "The fiction section contains two versions of the story: the 'full text' version on the left hand page, plus a 'speech bubble' version on the illustrations on the facing page, which is ideal for very poor readers. The two levels of story text are also great for 'buddy readers'." - Junior Education, June 2006.
