Having lots of books—of any kind—in a classroom is naturally a great thing. But when a classroom is filled with books that are highly appealing, in a wide variety of genres, and at text levels that match the reading abilities of your students, it’s a game-changer. Students are motivated to read, assume more agency in their learning, and develop the skills and habits to become lifelong readers.
