Famous Faces: Non-Fiction for Reluctant Readers
Famous Faces is a fantastic new series of non-fiction books for struggling readers. It is comprised of eight titles, all written especially for pupils who have a lower reading age than their chronological age, and all designed to be fun and attention-grabbing.
The series is pitched at 11-14 year olds with a lower reading age of just 9-10, and each title has a length of roughly 1,600-1,800 words. The books are packed full of engaging images, fantastic facts and fun layouts. Each chapter is short so struggling readers aren’t daunted by the amount of text.
Books cover subjects such as talent shows and their judges, wildlife and survival experts, social media stars, British music, make-up and fashion, celebrity spending, music festivals and popular films. These have all been selected as a result of talking to secondary pupils in order to gauge their interests, and therefore we are confident that they will appeal to that age group.
