Kits are presented in red expanding folders, and include copies of the book cover for easy browsing. Individual kits include six or more copies of a single title making them perfect for small group sharing.

How are Book Kits Leveled?

Book Kits were initially evaluated by COE education students as part of a course assignment, appropriate level information was recommended. Recent additions to the collection were purchased with leveling information identified by the publisher. In both cases, recommended levels are a starting point and should be evaluated prior to classroom use.
