Chestnut Publishing offers a wide variety of books, especially for reluctant and struggling readers. Chestnut publishes books under a variety of imprints, including High Interest Publishing, which offers novels that are specifically written, edited and designed for reluctant readers from ages 8 to 18. For some students these are the first books they will ever read from cover to cover.
