Pathways is designed to support transitional readers to build stamina, become familiar with nonfiction text features and language, and maintain progress and enthusiasm for their reading.

Each book includes:

  • thought-provoking "ant questions"
  • a surprise fold-out Ant Tunnel to motivate readers halfway
  • a detailed glossary

The Aventuras books are perfect for Spanish readers and language learners, and bilingual/dual-language learning environments.

Aventuras has been created through "authentic transliteration", rather than as a direct translation. This means the humor is still funny, the text is fluid, and the terms and expressions are as real and genuine as possible for your readers!
