An informative non-fiction text about Jumpers: how they are made, how wool is prepared and dyed, and how jumpers are knitted. Jumpers is a book-banded reading book for more confident readers, carefully levelled at Lime Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 1,085-word non-fiction book is suitable for ages 8 - 9.

Jumpers features a more demanding text with extended vocabulary and literary devices. Metaphor and technical language is introduced and illustrations no longer support the text directly.

Jumpers 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).
