Academic success is built on strong reading skills and higher-order thinking developed at an early age. However, getting children to read can be challenging in this age of electronic distractions. In spite of this, experience shows that children do take to reading when interesting material is available.

Adapted for South Asia from the internationally popular First Aid in English readers, favoured by learners worldwide for over three decades, Read Now is a series of graded readers for children of classes 1 to 8. The texts in these books are specially selected to arouse, maintain and satisfy the interest of the children. This interest helps them overcome difficulties in comprehension and the unfamiliarity of syntactic structures.

The selection in Read Now includes fables, legends, folk tales, short stories, extracts from classics, select non-fiction texts and a large number of poems. The key areas of learning covered by the series are:

• Reading comprehension

• Vocabulary

• Grammar

• Writing

• Life skills

• General knowledge

• Research skills

Attractive layout and colourful illustrations enliven the stories, poems, other texts and exercises, making learning lively and enjoyable.
