Why do doughnuts have holes? What causes people to yawn? Reading for Comprehension, Full-Color Edition is an update of our popular series and features high-interest articles to help students build their nonfiction reading skills.

New for this edition
  • A color-rich design and new articles have been added.
  • In the opening lessons, the skill for each question is labeled, so students know what reading strategy to use. In the lessons that follow, the labels are eliminated to allow students to show what they know. 
  • The order of the questions in each lesson varies to make the targeted skills less predictable.
  • Audio CDs are available for additional listening support.
  • lnteractive eBooks are available.

Audio CDs
