Fantails are a collection of book-banded books. They have carefully controlled levels according to a student's reading age. Each collection of books is set at foundation, emergent, early or fluency levels and can be used alongside other popular reading schemes. Books in the Lilac Band are wordless books that tell stories or give information through pictures. These books will help children explore and develop the vocabulary and language patterns of stories as well as begin to discuss characters and suggest how the story might end. Children may move between Lilac and Pink band books as you address different aspects of early reading. Includes 8 books at each band, 16 pages. Both fiction and non-fiction strands are available.

The nonfiction readers are written at the same level or just a step more difficult than the fiction. The fiction series tends to introduce vocabulary while the nonfiction series expands on topics. The Lilac books are wordless; the Pink readers have short, simple and repetitive structures with high frequency words. By the Gold level, students will predict content and handle new words in lengthy sentences. Key words (sight words) are listed in each book. No matter your reading program, these are a great addition. For additional phonetic support, add the correlating Junior Learning Decodable Readers (see description). pb ~ Ruth
