    We believe literacy is the key to success in life, so we are all about giving children a flying start by helping to launch them into literacy.
This core belief is at the heart of every Red Rocket Readers book.
Child Focused
Red Rocket Readers are carefully designed to support children through the use of controlled vocabulary and appropriately sized, well-spaced
and easy-to-read type.
Teacher Driven
Red Rocket Readers have been developed by world renowned literacy specialist, teacher and author, Pam Holden.
Strong characters, humor and definable plots combine graduated word recognition and language development with wonderful stories that children will really enjoy!
Red Rocket Readers feature bright, entertaining illustrations and photographs that support the text, launch oral discussion and develop student comprehension. The classic story structure (tension, climax and resolution) ensures children will want to engage with the texts.
Red Rocket Readers:
• enable students to read for enjoyment and information as they access meaning from fiction and non-fiction text

A Lifetime of Literacy!
