Hi-Lo is a term used to describe high-interest, low-readability books. Saddleback’s solutions incorporate mature, complex themes (high-interest) at lower reading levels (low readability). This combination engages readers by giving them content they WANT to read while setting them up for success.
Select books by theme to fill in the gaps of your classroom library or to help a specific student. There are many themes to choose from, as we firmly believe “if you want a kid to read a book, give them a book they want to read!”
