I deal with a lot of reluctant readers, and I’ve just stumbled upon the greatest books! Orca Book Publishers is a publisher that produces books for reluctant readers, especially readers on the lower spectrum, with a reading level of about second grade to fourth grade.
There are many different series that Orca Books publish, but my three favorites are Orca Soundings, Orca Currents, and Orca Sports.
Orca Soundings are short teen fiction books for reluctant readers, especially those reading below grade level. This series is generally for ages 12+.
Orca Currents are short middle grade fiction books for reluctant readers. This series is generally for ages 10-14.
Orca Sports are short fictional books that combine “mystery and adventure with team sports.” This series is generally for ages 10+.
Orca books are quickly becoming my favorite choice for my struggling readers! Know a reluctant reader? Check out my reviews and start reading!
