One Minute Reader books apply the principles of modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring that have been proven to be powerful strategies for helping kids become better readers.

Each book includes five high-interest stories that are the right length to encourage readers to practice without being overwhelming. The
books also include extra features like graphs for charting students' progress, crosswords puzzles, stickers, glossary terms, and fun facts.

One Minute Reader books are written at different reading levels so readers can find the level that fits their ability.
