These two principles guide the development of all our curriculum-aligned nonfiction titles for children in grades PreK-8. Our award winning, high-interest nonfiction books help get kids excited about reading, even if they are struggling or reluctant readers. We focus on topics that appeal to young readers across our three lines of books: Primary Nonfiction Our primary books help beginning readers in grades PreK-3 build confidence in their skills and develop a love of reading. Developed by literacy experts, these titles feature clear, easy-to-read text, colorful photographs, and popular age-appropriate subjects. Narrative Nonfiction Everyone enjoys a good story, especially when the story is true and the characters are real. Our high-interest narrative nonfiction books grab and hold a child's attention with well-told stories on topics that engage young readers. High-Interest Nonfiction Accessible and easy to read without looking "babyish," these high-interest, lower reading level books are packed with amazing photos and are ideal for struggling readers. Kids can enjoy these books on their own, even if they're reading below grade level.
