Print books

The Suzie the Scientist early reader series is available in print form for use at home (as home readers) or for use in the classroom (as guided readers). Each book in the 24 book series is a 16 page, full-colour publication spanning PM reading levels 1-24. Comparable sets of home readers from commercial suppliers can be more than double the cost of this series.

The books have been successfully trialled in schools as quality additions to both home reader and guided reader collections. The pre-, post- and during-reading prompts are combined with introductions to interesting scientific facts and ideas (from Suzie the Scientist) to assist teachers and parents to facilitate reading development while at the same time developing scientific literacy.

Books can be purchased in sets of 24 (spanning year levels K–2), sets of eight (spanning a single year level) or as individual titles. Shop here.
