When a child is learning to read, every word counts. The Lightning Readers series is perfect for developing readers because it takes this into account. Unlike other leveled readers' programs, each book in this innovative, new series has a limited vocabulary of 150 words or less to give readers practice with essential sight words. Plus, the books have been professionally leveled by reading experts to ensure that the language and vocabulary is age-appropriate. The series features a variety of styles, including fantasy, fable, and rhyme, that will appeal to both reluctant and enthusiastic readers. Word lists and comprehension questions at the back of each book reinforce fundamental reading concepts used in classrooms nationwide. Humorous, high-interest stories and colorful illustrations make learning to read with Lightning Readers a truly electrifying experience!
