Maverick Early Readers Turquoise - White
Maverick Early Reading Scheme books stand out as modern, beautifully produced, highly illustrated, bright and engaging books, so it's no wonder young readers find them highly appealing. Expertly written, with educational consultancy by Suzanne Baker, author of Book Bands for Guided Reading, (Institute of Education 1998) her involvement in the creation of these books assures quality.
For each book band level from Turquoise to White there is clear progression in terms of introducing more complex storylines through subplots, inference, prediction, and length. For Turquoise and Purple books, opportunities to read words with more phonic complexity are given. Stories are still mostly straightforward but there are simple subtexts beginning to emerge as well as more complex dialogue and sentence structure. A quiz at the end of the book will help children practise comprehension. From Gold to White, the stories introduce 'chapters' and children will be challenged to follow the plot and keep track of characters. In White level books, children will be encouraged to read between the lines and could be more in the know than the characters themselves!
