Great books stand the test of time.
These books share stories of adventure, mystery, creativity, and even hope. For many, these books sparked their love of reading.
For students, an increased emphasis on close reading helps them to explore texts more deeply and build the literacy skills they need to be successful in and outside of school – and become lifelong readers.
In honor of International Literacy Day, Educators for High Standard’s Teacher Champions shared what their favorite book is and why! Take a look and see what they said – some of their favorites might be yours as well!
