Come and meet the elephants, dik-diks and red pandas. At the Zoo is a book-banded reading book for early readers, carefully levelled at Blue Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 195-word first-person narrative is suitable for ages 5 - 6.

At the Zoo features a longer, less structured text with a more flexible vocabulary. There is variation in sentence patterns and content, little repetition, and longer language patterns. It has a full range of punctuation.

At the Zoo 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).
