And with grandparents coming to visit and trips to Pakistan in their schedules, the kids enjoy exploring their family culture and traditions in text aligned to Common Core standards and correlated to state standards.

    This title is part of the Books Out Loud™ collection, designed to make literacy fun, easy, and accessible. Educators agree that read-alongs are a cornerstone of successful K–8 education. The practice of reading aloud and listening to professional narrators strengthens comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency. While read-alongs are wildly popular in schools, they haven’t been available or sold elsewhere until now. Books Out Loud™ takes these fabulous titles outside of the classroom for the very first time—in a unique and affordable hybrid format that will empower readers everywhere.
