Have you heard the one about the girl who was run over by a train and lived -- unharmed -- to tell about it? Or the cancer patient who needed money for medical costs? She tried to sell her lamb at a farm auction -- and came back home with her lamb and $16,000! Or the two elderly piano players who make music together -- one can only use her left hand and the other can only use her right hand? These stories and more -- humorous, poignant, astounding -- and all true! More True Stories, Second Edition, by Sandra Heyer, consists of 22 readings based on human-interest stories adapted from newspapers and magazines -- including new, updated, and improved material. The universal appeal of these stories ensures a pleasurable reading experience and motivates students toward reading fluency. Vocabulary, reading skills, discussion, and writing exercises have been refined and improved based on classroom experiences with the highly successful first edition.
