Like most teachers, my classroom library is filled with book that are readily available for students to access and enjoy. I have filled the shelves with high-interest reads, such as books from the Magic Tree House series and classic Dr. Seuss books. The characters and whimsical plots of these books fill children with joy. I want to transfer those feeling though more genres of text, such as nonfiction stories that are not as present in my classroom. It's never too early to expose young children to nonfiction book that relates to the world around them. Informational text prepare students to handle real-life reading. Children need to have more exposure to informational text that addresses student questions and interest. Not only will they see more books on the shelves about real people and real life, these leveled readers will also put books at their fingertips that are leveled and just right for their brains to enjoy!
