Books kids can read and want to read

Books for reluctant and struggling readers

HIP novels appeal to teen and preteen readers at all levels, but they are particularly helpful as reading support for reluctant readers.  If you are looking for resources for reading intervention, High Interest Publishing offers exciting novels at accessible reading levels for even the most struggling readers. Whether your students have difficulty reading or not, HIP novels are an excellent addition to any school or classroom library.

We at High Interest Publishing commend the many teachers who are going above and beyond to ensure that their students have access to books they can read and want to read.

High Interest Publishing offices remain open at this time to take your orders and answer your questions. There are three additional ways that we are supporting our customers in getting reading materials into the hands of the students who need them most:  Google Books Previews, downloadable home learning packages with readings and comprehension activities, and complete book pdfs.

We realize that many schools are not open to take deliveries at this time.  If you would like to place an order now, we will hold it in our warehouse until you are ready to take delivery.

What Teachers are Saying about HIP Books

  • [My friend’s daughter, who has dyslexia,] told me that she just read my hi-lo (high interest, low vocabulary) The Last Dragon all by herself in two days and loved it so much! And it is the first-ever chapter book that she has ever read all by herself! I feel so honoured and also delighted. (beaming and beaming)
