Alone is a high interest, low readability Choose a Path book.
It features specially recorded audio support.
The reader of Alone is in charge of making choices and experiencing the consequences of their decisions.
There are multiple interactive paths to choose from; each with a different ending. This encourages the research-proven technique of repeated readings.
You’re at home alone, bored and lonely. You decide it’s time to make some new friends. Should you choose to break a family rule by leaving the house without checking with an adult? Should you let a stranger into your house? Should you hang out with the wrong crowd at the school skate ramp? Should you steal food from a shop, when you’re hungry?
About the author:
Meryl-Lynn Pluck has spent more than half her lifetime learning about, researching, teaching and writing for students who struggle with learning to read and/or are reluctant readers.
Knowing how beneficial it is for a developing reader to engage in repeated reading (especially with audio support), Meryl-Lynn believes Choose a Path titles are the ultimate.
“Readers improve their reading skills, they learn how to make choices in safe settings and they have fun as they are engaged and in charge. The stories are short and to the point, which older, developing readers really like.”
