Classic Story Readers Level 2 link with A1 in the CEFR levels, and Movers in the Cambridge Exams. Stories at this level have a word count of 850-2,000 words. Overall page count is 32-48 pages. At launch, Level 2 consists of five titles: King Midas and the Golden Touch, The Selfish Giant, The Trojan Horse, The Pied Piper of Hamelin, and King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone.
Level 2 readers are intended for children who have studied English for a year or two. Some titles are classed as ‘short reads’ and some as ‘long reads’. ‘Short reads’ suit less confident readers, ‘long reads’ suit more confident ones. You can also use the individual word count of each book to decide on the best reading order. Whatever level of reading confidence children have, the fascinating stories and enchanting illustrations will get them interested in following the storyline and enhancing their vocabulary.
