Tina and I see a lack of availability of high quality, short, simple and inexpensive readers in our community. We therefore are putting out a call for a new kind of reader that fits the above descriptors that provides lessons in culture besides just good stories.
We want to promote a new genre of reader, from new authors. We are tired of the old. We don’t care if these new readers align perfectly with any high frequency lists – we feel that high frequency lists should not provide the underpinnings of a level 1 reader, but rather interest.
