What kind of bug can sing? What animal looks like a log? Reading for Comprehension Readiness fosters reading readiness in the context of nonfiction reading. This three-book series adapts our highly successful Reading for Comprehension model to meet the needs of emergent readers. Each book combines engaging factual articles with questions and activities that assess comprehension and build critical thinking skills. It lays the groundwork to build reading-for-information skills students will need in later grades. See our updated Reading for Comprehension Readiness, Full-Color Edition!

  • Series progresses from sight words and short vowels to long vowels and easily decodable blends.
  • High-interest articles focus on people and animals.
  • Students quickly adapt to consistent question formats.
  • Fun Pages in Books 1 and 2 and Writing Pages in Book 3 reinforce readiness skills like classifying, distinguishing real from make-believe, and following directions.
  • Books are written at the first-grade level but the high-interest articles make them ideal for struggling readers at the higher grades.
  • Teacher's guides include instructional strategies, remediation techniques, and a reproducible evaluation chart.

Reading for Comprehension Readiness is ideal for students in grades 1 through 3. You may use any of the three books for this grade range.
