Wish there was finally quality Jewish literature that enhances your child’s reading skills? There is now! Check out these fantastic series.
Yom Tov is coming…and that means if I want to have a tranquil Yom Tov…we need new books! That’s because a child with a good book at his side is never bored (and so much better behaved!). In the past, when choosing books for your child, you had to choose between books that inculcate Jewish values and quality literature which enhances their reading skills. Not anymore! Now, for the first time ever, Menucha Publishers has begun publishing Jewish leveled readers!
Leveled readers enable children to develop essential reading skills at their own pace. When a book is “leveled” it’s assigned a specific reading level and deemed to be quality literature that enhances literacy. Leveled readers offer the right amount of challenge, and cover a variety of topics that broaden your children’s horizons.
These are the top new leveled readers available for your 2nd-6th graders, available online at MenuchaPublishers.com or at your local Judaica store.
