Features

  • Sometimes children struggle with reading comprehension because they don’t know how to read.
    • Please make sure your child has mastered basic reading skills: consonant sounds, long and short vowel sounds, blends, etc.
    • If your student needs to learn to read, I suggest looking at the Explode the Code series. It also covers some basic reading comprehension.
  • For younger children, there is the Early Reading Comprehension series.
  • Each book includes pre-tests, post-tests, and an answer key.
  • The books in this series are reproducible for single-classroom use.
  • Reading Detective series is a secular curriculum; we believe that it is up to parents to guide their children as they use it.
