Description

The frogs cannot decide what they should do. They do not know what to eat, what to play or when to sleep. So they ask Zeus to give them a king. The results are not what they expected! The Frogs Want a King is a bookbanded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Purple Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 737-word fiction story is suitable for ages 7 -8.

The Frogs Want a King features a more demanding text with an extended vocabulary. With a wider vocabulary, the characters are more three dimensional, and illustrations are less important. It encourages more independent reading.

The Frogs Want a King 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).
