Novel Learning Series®

Dear Readers and Parents,

As the father of five children, I know how important and how challenging it is to give your child every opportunity to succeed as he or she prepares for college. For this reason, I teamed with my publisher to create the Novel Learning Series, a collection of educational editions of my novels. Our hope is that by engaging teenagers with accessible and entertaining novels, while providing them with guides that challenge them to improve their reading comprehension and writing skills, we will give your child the tools he or she needs to thrive in the classroom.

I am proud that Walmart will be featuring these editions in their back to-school section, starting the week of July 22nd and continuing through Labor Day. I hope you will check them out when you’re there equipping your teen for the school year ahead, and let us know of any feedback.

Thank you for reading.

Yours,


About the Books and Student Guides

Nicholas Sparks is a household name to a generation of teens who have grown up devouring his books and eagerly seeing his films upon release. With accessible language, emotionally resonant storytelling, and compelling moral questions, these books make great choices for both struggling and advanced teen readers.

These student editions, with learning guides interspersed throughout the text, provide checks for the students while introducing and familiarizing them with SAT and ACT style question-and-answer formats. Developed in conjunction with a high school English teacher and a leading expert in the field of secondary education, these student guides are aligned with the ELA Common Core State Standards and fulfill protocol requirements used by almost every state.

Step-by-step essay writing prompts and evaluation rubrics guide students in developing their writing skills and aid teachers by providing excellent breakdowns of what elements are present in a below-average, average, and above-average essay.
