Dog fleas, cat fleas, even human fleas: you can find out about them in this non-fiction book. Fleas is a book-banded reading book for early readers, carefully levelled at Yellow Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 131-word non-fiction book is suitable for ages 5 - 6.

Fleas features a short, structured text with accessible vocabulary, has more variation in sentence structure with some repetition in patterns. Punctuation includes comma, full stops, exclamation and question marks, and direct speech.

Fleas 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).
