This series is ideal for struggling readers in grades 4 – 6 who are in need of age-appropriate subjects at a low reading level. No longer will upper-elementary students have to read material junior to their maturity and interests. There is a wide variety of genres to choose from, and the characters span a diverse range of backgrounds. Science fiction, sports, paranormal, realistic life, historical fiction, and fantasy are just a few of the many genres.
They are a good step from Sound Out Chapter Books in that the type size is slightly smaller and sentence length is short. Illustrations are included on every page spread, which should aid struggling readers and keep them turning the pages!
