"Collins Soundbites" is a series of readers for Key Stage 3 students with poor literacy skills. It contains three levels of graded, progressive readers, on cross-curricular topics that are particularly suitable for boys. The series supports progress units for Year 7. Each mixed pack contains six different readers at each of the three stages (stage 1: reading age 6-7; stage 2: age 7-8; stage 3: age 8-9). Two thirds of each book is 'narrative' style text. One third of each book covers information, using a variety of text types such as autobiographies, biographies, journals, diaries, letters (personal and formal), travel writing, leaflets, reports, reviews, adverts, newspaper/magazine articles, tables. Specialized, difficult or technical vocabulary is explained on the page, with a one-page glossary at the end. The topics covered address the KS3 curriculum in different areas.

[the] books blend fiction and non-fiction interestingly and attractively... should appeal to both girls and boys.'TES 'Good mixture of reading narrative, illustrations, explanations and opportunity for extension activities.'
