This collection taps into children’s natural interest in animals and uses that interest to empower kids to develop as nonfiction readers. These animal books support a deeper, more engaged, and committed sort of reading. This collection supports research clubs, containing many books that address a particular animal in ways that will help kids to synthesize information across those texts.
The books in this library shelf are also included in the complete Grade 5 Below Benchmark Classroom Library. For complete details about the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Classroom Libraries please
