chiguirre Posted May 23 Share Posted May 23 My English language learner nephew is comfortable reading Magic Treehouse Fact Trackers and Who Was? books. What other series of non-fiction (geography, history, science, doesn't matter) are at that level or slightly more challenging? I've got some Simon Basher science books and Magic School Bus books on hold (MSB are short, but they're listed as grades 2-4). Dn can decode well and his English vocabulary is rapidly expanding. It turns out most of the "hard" words tend to have Latin or French roots and he can usually figure them out from Spanish cognates. It's all those common, little Anglo-Saxon words that he still needs help with sometimes. He says he doesn't like fiction and I want to honor that preference because he has enough stress in his life right now. However, if you know of any boy friendly books that are at the Magic Treehouse level (but not Jack and Annie, sniff, I loved those books when my kids were little), I'd like to sneak a couple into the book pile and see if he bites.
