    Recommended Literature: Prekindergarten Through Grade Twelve is a searchable database of books for children and teens which helps students, teachers, and families find books that entertain, inform, and explore new ideas and experiences. Each book has a description called an “annotation” that explains what the book is about. The annotation can help with deciding if the title is interesting and appropriate to read.

    This is not a partial or complete reading list, however, it is a guidepost for the text types required by the Common Core State Standards, by grade level. The Exemplars provide text samples that show the level of complexity and quality that the Standards require of all students in a given grade band. Additionally, they are suggestive of the breadth of texts students should become familiar with emphasizing non-fiction works.
