Overview

Get content-aligned books that motivate kids to read.

Basal readers and content-area textbooks can help teachers meet the standards. Evidence suggests that if students exclusively use textbooks, that can stifle student interest and development of critical-thinking skills. By supplementing textbooks with classroom libraries, teachers give students extra incentive to read, which can boost content-area learning.

HMH Custom Classroom Libraries

HMH Custom Classroom Libraries provide a print library tailored to your school or district. Choose among popular, current, and diverse titles, or request your own. Your library can be configured to support independent reading, guided reading, or whole classroom reading.

Custom Libraries
Why are schools and districts customizing their own libraries? They aim to
  • Meet state standards and provide additional reading in content areas
  • Align to adopted ELA programs, anchor texts, or units of study 
  • Update their libraries to include specific authors, contemporary titles, and a variety of genres
