Reading Worlds is a reading series for African primary schools which encourages children to take an active interest in reading for pleasure and for information. There are exciting activities at the back of each book.
The main aim of Reading Worlds is to help children develop into confident, independent readers by the time they leave primary school. Then, as they begin high school, they will be able to study effectively and learn independently – and they will also learn to enjoy reading.
Reading Worlds is divided into seven reading levels, and includes both fiction and non-fiction books. The three different types of books are Everyday World, Discovery World and Imaginary World.
- Everyday World – contains contemporary, fun and lively stories based on familiar situations and contexts.
- Discovery World – has a diverse collection of fact based stories drawn from historical, geographical, scientific, sport and cultural sources.
- Imaginary World – these are imaginative modern and traditional African or folktale stories with universal appeal and relevance.
