Overview

Reading Smart Junior is The Princeton Review's contribution to helping kids with their struggles with some of those less desirable reading assignments. They accomplish this by looking at tough books as an interesting challenge.

The Smart Junior gang is dispatched on a mission to the Land of Fiction where they encounter chapters from all sorts of texts, including Oliver Twist, Huck Finn and the March Sisters. Following each chapter there will be a short passage from the book as well as a series of questions designed to help the reader look at reading as a wealth of themes, instead of just a jumble of characters and events.

Includes loads of helpful glossaries, vocabulary and comprehensive exercises to help readers remember words and ideas. After this book, kids might even enjoy reading assignments in school!
