Pick a book. Grow a Reader!

This series is part of Scholastic's early reader line, Acorn, aimed at children who are learning to read. With easy-to-read text, a short-story format, plenty of humor, and full-color artwork on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and fluency. Acorn books plant a love of reading and help readers grow!

Viv and Sanjay are the Inside Scouts! Together, they help animals. They have a cool superpower -- they can shrink super small. A giraffe can't eat because her tummy feels sick. The Inside Scouts put on their suits, grab their tools, and get really small! They go inside the giraffe to find out what is stuck in her gut. And they work together to help the giraffe feel better!

This series introduces beginning readers to the human body through mammals with similar anatomy -- and it does so in really fun ways! In this book, readers learn about the digestive system as Viv and Sanjay fix a giraffe's upset stomach! With color-coded speech bubbles, easy-to-read text, and light nonfiction content, these engaging STEM-themed stories are the perfect fit for new readers!
