The practice of reading aloud and listening to professional narrators strengthens comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency. While read-alongs are wildly popular in schools, they haven’t been available or sold elsewhere until now. Books Out Loud™ takes these fabulous titles outside of the classroom for the very first time—in a unique and affordable format that will empower readers everywhere. This hi-lo series s complete with a glossary, an index, an online learning supplement, sources for further research, and is aligned to Common Core standards and correlated to state standards.
