Pump by Sharon Jennings


Pump by Sharon Jennings

Just enter the half-pipe in a crouch. Then rise to a standing position as you begin the upward slope. A pump is easy...not like the rest of Pat's skateboarding life. That's a challenge...Can he take it? The great thing about the High Interest Series from Robinswood is that you'd never think that the books were anything other than just regular books. They look like, feel like, and read like regular books. But there's a lot of meticulous development behind each title to make the books attractive to readers right across the reading range in the classroom - from the avid to the much more reluctant. This is invaluable for integrated classroom discussion, especially when reviewing the books with the material in the Teachers' Handbooks. Each book is developed, designed and laid out with great care to work really well with any reader - whether in the classroom or at home. It's then extensively tested and refined in the classroom environment to make sure that it will get read, that students won't give up on the story through over-challenging text, and that they'll get the satisfaction of having completed the book.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
