By Jillian Powell, Stefania Colnaghi
Start Reading is a new series of highly enjoyable books for beginning readers at KS1. They have been carefully graded to correspond to the Book Bands now widely used in schools. This enables readers to be sure that they choose books that match their own ability. There is very careful and gentle graduation from Band to Band. The books can be shared with an adult or read independently. They promote the enjoyment of reading through reading real, satisfying stories with a beginning, a middle and an end. Rosie's Rides is at Book Band 3 in the Start Reading series. Rosie is going on all sorts of Rides, rollercoaster rides, pony rides, jeep rides and train rides. All have their adventures.
