Learn about an illness in the brain that can make you forget. Gaps in the Brain is a low level phonics reading book. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this non-fiction title features a fully decodable text, suitable for struggling teen and adult readers.

Gaps in the Brain uses a carefully limited set of letters and sounds to make up all the words. (For UK schools this relates to Phase 5 of Letters and Sounds, the UK Government's synthetic phonics reading programme.)

Gaps in the Brain is part of Ransom's Neutron Stars, a structured reading programme for teens and adults learning the basics of reading. The series offers progression through ten levels of reading, four phonics and six coloured book bands.
