30 Additional non-fiction readers plus 3 Teacher's Resources, in 3 Stages, follow the structure and style of the parent series, "Jumpstart". Its purpose is to provide non-fiction, easy-read books for the primary reading market, as well as to add more breadth to each stage of "Jumpstart". "Jumpstart Extra" Stage A provides ten non-fiction books to complement and extend "Jumpstart" Stage 1 readers. Every "Jumpstart Extra" title links thematically to a core book in "Jumpstart", and repeats the core book's high frequency vocabulary. Less confident readers are progressively familiarized with non-fiction text features such as captions, diagrams, maps, indexes and glossaries. No new strategies are introduced and new vocabulary is minimal, allowing children increased opportunities to succeed.
