Students in Grades 3 to 5 are growing as readers and thinkers. Crucial mental growth at this stage helps them read and understand more complex texts and perform more intricate tasks.

It's an ideal time for them to explore new paths into the world of literature.

In this library, you'll visit classes where students are finding their way on that path — forming complex and highly personal worlds of ideas and impressions about the stories, plays, and poems as they read, write about, and discuss them.

Find out how you can help your students become actively engaged with literature — turning into life-long learners who love literature and love thinking about it.
