Annotation

Imagine scuba diving near the Florida coast and suddenly getting sucked into the huge pump of a nuclear power plant! Or writing love letters to someone every day for a year, only to see that person marry the mail carrier!

The universal appeal of these real-life, human-interest stories engages beginning ESL students with humor, poignancy, or astonishment, and helps them to become fluent readers.

Each book features:
— Pre-reading questions.
— Exercises in vocabulary, comprehension, discussion, and writing.
— Carefully controlled vocabulary and structures.
— A variety of essential reading skills.
— Activities for pair or small-group work.

An outstanding first reader for false-beginners. Each story is introduced with comic-strip style pictures to spark student interest and prepare them for reading. Written almost exclusively in the present tense, most stories are less than half a page long.
