True Stories Behind the Songs (beginning level) and More True Stories Behind the Songs (high-beginning level) are reading textbooks for students of English. They are in the True Stories family of high-interest readers. Each Songs textbook features lyrics for eight popular songs along with real, believe-it-or-not stories about the songs and their songwriters. Companion stories related to the topic of the song round out the units.
