The 1.0 Reader is a beginning reader containing 44 short stories. To read the first story the student only needs to know the seven target words for that story. Words and phrases that have not been learned yet are in bold type. At the end of the story the words in bold type are listed along with their English meanings.

To read the second story the student only needs to know the new target words and phrases and those from story #1. Again, any words the student has not yet learned are in bold type, listed at the end of the short story along with the English meanings.

This pattern repeats itself throughout the 44 short stories. The 1.0 Reader vocabulary and level of difficulty at the end of the reader meshes seamlessly with the next reader in the series, the 1.1 Reader.

The 1.0 Reader was piloted by three high school teachers with their beginning students, with positive feedback.

The target vocabulary closely mirrors the vocabulary of Michael Miller's SABINE UND MICHAEL, Level 1, chapters 1 and 2.

The reader is 5.5 inches x 8.5 inches and 152 pages. Average story length is 260 words.
