Students who read below grade level will be immediately engaged by the books in this collection. The covers and titles spark interest, and each book was carefully chosen to be age-appropriate—not childish. This fiction collection spans a wide range of reading levels, reflecting the knowledge that readers need choice and practice at each level as their reading skills grow stronger.
