Shared Reading

Build a strong early reading foundation with books that engage and excite


As a teacher of literacy, you transform the lives of the children in your classroom. The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Shared Reading Collection ensures an enjoyable experience for your classroom community. Shared reading provides an important opportunity for children to “step up together” into more challenging texts, and to use them as mentor texts as they gain independence.

The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Shared Reading texts are an exquisite collection of original big books, in a variety of genres, with accompanying lesson folders. Six small copies of each book, as well as audiobooks, are provided for children to revisit during independent reading. Some of the books have special features such as flaps, cutouts, and foldouts to engage and excite children.

The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Colección de Lectura compartida features an engaging array of Spanish adaptations of books and lessons, and includes new books beautifully illustrated and authentically written by Spanish-speaking authors and illustrators.
