9 Teacher Approved Books for Your Home Library

We’re big believers in the power of a great book. Great books hold a child’s attention, introduce him to a new world and push the boundaries of her imagination - all while being more tempting than a screen.


The 9 books below were selected by teachers and reported on by Scholastic.com. They’re great for starting (or building) your library. Some are silly, others more educational. Check them out below, but remember this bit of advice: Collect a variety of genres - fiction, nonfiction, comic/graphic and classics. The more variety, the better. Particularly with emerging readers who may be searching for their reading “hook.”
