Book Buddy announced today that Townsend Press has teamed with them to offer the highly popular young adult’s titles – The Bluford Series - for Hear and Read Intervention with GoReader™. The series is a popular collection of eighteen ‘young-adult’ novels that focus on the lives of a group of high school students and their families.
With the addition of GoReader™ as a Book Buddy Set with audio support, this popular choice for school- and city-wide reading initiatives is transformed into a powerful collection for developing reading skills. The Bluford Series has been endorsed by the Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy (JAAL) and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). School Library Journal lists The Bluford Series among the most popular books in Schools.
Set in contemporary urban America, each novel addresses complex topics relevant to today’s students: family, friendship, trust, violence, bullying and peer-pressure to name a few. The Bluford Series is powerful and has been very successful engaging reluctant teen readers. It was a natural to pair with GoReader™ as Book Buddy Sets.
