For Adult Beginning Readers (or Reluctant Teen Readers)
A hi-lo book is a title that is interesting to an adult or teen reader at a comparatively low reading level with simple vocabulary and syntax, short chapters, a slim page count, and gripping storylines. Hi-lo books are used to help struggling and/or reluctant readers strengthen decoding and comprehension skills, build confidence, and spark a love of reading. Hi-lo materials can be specifically designed and published as hi-lo or materials that fit into the high interest, low reading level criteria.
Stop by the library and check out our Adult New Readers shelf to see these exciting new titles for beginning readers.
