How do penguins keep warm in winter? How do they move? Where do they live? How do penguins feed their young? It's all in this book! Penguins is a book-banded reading book for more confident readers, carefully levelled at White Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 1,054-word non-fiction book is suitable for ages 7 - 8.

Penguins features a more demanding text with extended vocabulary and literary devices. It has more clauses in sentences, the use of metaphor is introduced, and the story plot is more involved.

Penguins 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).
