This collection taps into children’s natural interest in animals and uses that interest to empower kids to develop as nonfiction readers. These engaging, but easy to read, books support a deeper, more committed sort of reading. Containing a number of books about the same animals, this collection supports research clubs, providing students the opportunity to synthesize information gleaned from several sources.
The books in this library shelf are also included in the complete Grade 4 Below Benchmark Classroom Library. For complete details about the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Classroom
