Titles in this collection

The titles in this leveled basket collection are continuously changing based on inventory levels and publisher availability, thus we cannot provide you with a definitive list of titles that you will receive. We can assure you, however, that all titles represent the very best in children’s literature and include a mix of fiction/non-fiction, boy/girl characters, and serious/fun topics! All of the books are hand-chosen by a team of literacy experts at American Reading Company who have evaluated more than 100,000 titles from more than 250 publishers. In the event that a basket collection you receive includes any titles that you already own, we are unable to accept returns or exchanges of any individual titles. They do make great birthday gifts!

Reading Level: Black

Bk-level readers really get hooked on reading. This is when silent reading takes off and readers will sit and read for long periods of time, reluctant to stop because they want to find out what happens next. Bk is the level where good readers binge on junky series books (e.g., Goosebumps, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Matt Christopher’s sports fiction). This should be encouraged because it builds fluency, silent reading speed, endurance, and the habit of reading. Literary taste will come with experience. Require Bk-level readers to demonstrate their proficiency in both fiction and nonfiction, but otherwise let them indulge their passions. The levels that follow require students to broaden their reading into new genres. Take advantage of all the junky fiction and have students master the narrative form: characters, settings, dialogue, point of view, theme, etc., in both reading and writing.

In Bk text, the vocabulary demands are increasing, with 3–5 words on a typical chapter book page not familiar from everyday speech. Be sure readers can define those words either from past reading experience or through the use of context clues. Bk-level readers should finish a Bk chapter book, or its equivalent, each week.
