Ernest Hemingway is one of Illinois' most famous sons. He was the most popular novelist of the 20th century. His stories were often based on his own life adventures - and he had plenty! These popular readers include easy-to-read information, fun facts and trivia, humor, activities and a whole lot more. They are great for ages 7-12 (grades 2-6), because although simple, these readers have substance and really engage kids with their stories. They are great for social studies, meeting state and national curriculum standards, individual and group reading programs, centers, library programs, and have many other terrific educational uses.
