Two New Level 3 Books   Leave a comment

Here is another Level 3 book that looks relatively free of slang and idiomatic expressions.  This is great if you are a big baseball fan.  These are a series of mysteries set in each of the different Major League Baseball stadiums in the United States.  Each mystery also includes great information about the stadium.  Did you know that the San Francisco Giant’s stadium has a big slide for kids that is shaped like a soda bottle?

Ballpark Mysteries #7: The San Francisco Splash (A Stepping Stone Book(TM))

Baseball Mysteries #7: The San Francisco Splash, by David Kelly (Random House, 2013).

As always, the goal is to do some fun reading at your level in English that will allow you to learn a lot of new vocabulary and to see the proper  English usage over and over.  This is the easy and fun way to supercharge your English!  This is exactly one of the most important and fun things I do to help myself learn Spanish.  If you have the time, try to quickly summarize what you have just read at the end of each reading session.

 

If you like non-fiction, the following book is a part of a series of biographies of living and historical figures.  They are very inexpensive and there are many to choose from.  This same publisher also has books on famous historical events at the same level:

Who Is Jane Goodall? (Who Was...?)

Who is Jane Goodall? By Roberta Edwards (Grossett & Edwards, 2012). There are quite a few books in this series. This particular book is a biography written about one of the most famous scientists in the world. Jane Goodall went to Africa and began to study chimpanzees long before women began studying primates in the field. She was able to gain the trust of the chimpanzees by being a quiet and caring observer, and her observations changed the course of the study of chimpanzees, changing many theories at the time. If you like this series, there are books on Amelia Earhart, William Shakespeare, Sacagewea, Davey Crockett, Walt Disney, Jim Henson, Steve Jobs, Hellen Keller, Sally Ride, and many, many more. The list includes living and historical figures.
