The Life Skills collections represented on this page are excellent resources for older students, ELLs, and adults reading below-level. All of the products are meant to engage and assist in building the skills needed to live life independently. Each 5-book set in the series covers a key aspect of independent living. Topics for the Living Skills set include: budgeting, opening a bank account, credit, coupons, and saving. Developed for students reading at the most basic level, each book is actually two books in one, with a nonfiction side and a fiction side. The nonfiction side teaches students about an important life skills topic, and the fiction side helps them generalize the skills as they read about teens in real-world situations.

Each set includes 5 flip books (1 each of 5 titles).
