What tools do you need to start a rocks and minerals collection? What's it like to live and work in an attack submarine? Kids will find answers to these and to a thousand other questions in the new Children's Press High Interest Books, the ultimate series of "high-low" books for reluctant readers. The books are geared toward an interest level of grades 7-12 and a reading level of grades 4-7. Launched in Fall 2000 with 66 titles that cover a dizzying array of diverse topics, High Interest Books have something to offer every reluctant reader. What was hip-hop artist and actor Will Smith's first big break in show business? What can a new recruit expect on the first day of army boot camp? How should a first-time snowmobiler dress when hitting the trails? Every 48-page High Interest Book is carefully written to satisfy a young teenager's voracious appetite for knowledge. Clearly written, simple sentences and consistently familiar vocabulary combine to convey real meaning to even the most reluctant readers. Brilliant color photos, fascinating sidebars, and user-friendly fact boxes, charts, and tables highlight key information in the text. Where appropriate, some books include timelines, equipment lists, safety tips, and maps. How can you fine-tune your basketball jump shot? --
