Children who are asked to read slightly above their comfort level will develop into superior readers. Reading requires an active, discriminating mind that is challenged to think, compare, and contrast. Our literature study guides train students to become active readers. They focus on vocabulary, spelling, comprehension, and composition skills. Adam of the Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray is a winner of the Newberry Medal. It is the fascinating tale of a boy's search in 13th century England for his father and dog who disappeared.
