Helicopters fly over your head every day. Every Helicopter is different and has a job to do. Do you know about them? Helicopters is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Blue Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this nonfiction title is suitable for ages 9-13.


Helicopters 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.


Helicopters is part of Ransom Reading Stars Plus, a structured programme for students learning to read. The series has ten levels: four phonics levels and six book band levels (Pink through to Orange).
