Maturing readers can understand different points of view and identify story elements like characters and conflict. Use the levels to correlate to your student's grade to start. As they master each series, they will see their progress when moving up to the next level. Inside each cover are activity ideas such as asking your child to compare and contrast or make predictions from looking at the pictures. You could create some spelling practice or grammar lessons based on the stories or let the kids make a journal about their reading (likes, dislikes, new words, places they want to visit someday, etc). 32-47pgs each, pb. ~ Sara
