The New nasen A-Z of Reading Resources is a graded list of all current reading schemes complete with guidance on the books' suitability for readers at different levels of experience and competence. It will:
enable teachers, SENCos and support services to choose books that are appropriate yet sufficiently rewarding for struggling readers
prove to be a time-saving resource for schools replenishing their reading stock
follow up-to-the-minute thinking on `readability'.
A great resource for all schools - primary and secondary - as well as support services, advisers and literacy consultants.
