Exciting chapter books with realistic characters for kids reading below Grade 2 level.

These 70 page chapter books look like the novels that the other kids are reading, but are padded with white space and graphic novel-style illustrations to support readers who don’t have the stamina to complete longer novels.  Exciting stories feature young heroes in dangerous situations or confronting social challenges.

INTEREST LEVEL:  Grades 3-6
TECHNICAL READING LEVEL:  mid-Grade 1 to early Grade 2*

Note:  HIP uses a variety of readability formulas to determine the reading level of every page of its novels.  A mid-grade one reading level is an indication of the challenges of vocabulary and sentence length; it does not mean the content of these books is appropriate for six year-old readers.
