Many Ways to Help (2012)

This e-book is part of a series called Best of the Reader, which consists of stories from The Westcoast Reader, a newspaper for adults trying to improve their English reading skills.

Each story is accompanied by exercises to help learners improve both their reading skills and their grasp of English. The material can be used by a learner on his own or by a teacher in a classroom.

The theme of this book is helping others, both at the individual and organizational level. One story features a little girl who collects coins to help homeless people, while another describes the Grameen Bank, which makes small loans to very poor people in Third World countries.

Several stories focus on the relationship between people and animals, including one about a disabled woman and her service dog and another about a therapy dog who visits children in hospital.

The reading level of each story is indicated by an icon showing one, two or three books.
