      Research Shows that children who work at reading levels that are too difficult often develop poor or limited reading strategies. Eventually these children can become discouraged, and reading becomes drudgery.

      But when children are taught using Level Readers that fit their level of literacy development, they learn good reading strategies and reading becomes FUN.

Why Go Beyond Basal Readers?

      Leveled Readers provide gradually increasing stages of difficulty that beginning readers really need.

      Leveled Readers help children function as high progress readers by providing meaning (through pictures and engaging stories) and the opportunity to discover sound/letter relationships.

      Leveled Readers allow for repetition of stores in language children are familiar with. In this way, children can use knowledge of stories they've heard before to increase understanding and maximize their reading skills.

A Great Alternative

      Although some educational publishers provide Leveled Readers for the secular market, few materials exist for schools who value Scripture content.

      A Reason For Guided Reading®  offers an academically sound alternative - Leveled Readers feature Scripture stories, nature, values, and more! Built on the pioneering work of Fountas and Pinnel, Cunningham, and others. A Reason For Guided Reading®   reflects the strengths of Guided Reading and similar highly successful programs.
