The Invisible Scale

SmartReads have been scaled according to recommended readability and interest ages. This scaling of texts is simply to provide teachers with some guidance in choosing texts for the class or individual pupils and is by no means prescriptive. Levels are not marked on the books themselves and so pupils can read books appropriate to their level without fear of  judgement from other pupils.

Balanced Language

Giglets SmartReads preserve the spirit of the original story while removing many of the barriers to understanding, particularly inaccessible language. Vocabulary is carefully balanced to challenge the reader without becoming overwhelming.
