About High Noon Books
High Noon Books offers high interest / low reading level books for students, struggling readers, and those learning English as a second language.
High Interest / Low Level books are designed to contain content that appeals to a struggling readers' age and maturity level, but are written at a reading level that is lower than the student's grade level. A lower readability level provides an opportunity for the student to read words he or she is familiar with, while introducing a few new words and terms. In this way the student should read more fluently and therefore comprehend the story easier. A good reading experience will hopefully encourage the student to read more books and develop a joy of reading!
–connected text (not picture books)
High Noon Books can serve as a bridge between beginning readers (picture books and stories with only a few words per page) and standard text (as in a magazine, or schoolbook, or trade book).

First Grade, Second Grade, and Third Grade Readability Chapter Books
