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.
