Studies show that the best way to teach children to read is to match them up with books that are at their current reading level. Each book within the application is given a letter grade based on Guided Reading educational standards. The leveling system is explained in plain language in the application so parents know what level of book to start their child with. Books in the application are labeled from easiest (level A) to most challenging (level M). A gradient of book difficulty is a helpful tool for selecting just the “right” book for each child. Beginning readers build their fluency and comprehension skills when they read books that are not too easy and not too hard, allowing them to concentrate on comprehension instead of struggling to decode many unknown words.

Why our books work (AKA our secret sauce):
● The font is crisp and easy for beginning readers.
● Supportive pictures provide beginning readers with an extension of the ideas found in the text.
● The print is carefully spaced.
● The line breaks are carefully planned to support natural language and fluency.
● The characters and story lines are appealing to young children.
● The vocabulary for the stories is controlled but in a natural way
(new words are introduced carefully).

What teachers and parents have to say about our books:
“My first graders continue to be thrilled and engaged with their e-reading on the iPads. I have created a handy docking station where students can retrieve and put away iPads independently. I have also introduced them to the narrator voice (with headphones). That has been excellent for students of all levels but particularly it gives my challenged readers more opportunity to experience and enjoy books.”

“Pioneer Valley Books has created characters which engage and enthrall young readers. They truly care about the plight of Bella and Rosie, and the fact that they can read stories about them as they move up the levels is enticing. The length and size of the books change as they become more competent readers, all while allowing the comfort of familiar characters.”

“My daughter and I have really been enjoying this app – she loves the beautiful illustrations and photos, and she immediately figured out how to launch the books and proceed through the pages.”

“A well-thought-out and beautifully designed book reader for early and emergent readers. The books are designed by reading professionals ant the prices are great. Highlight recommended as a reading teacher.”

"Books that are motivating and have a little humor in them help engage my struggling readers. They WANT to read!"
