Hook Books

The HOOK BOOK Libraries™ offer the best 50, 100 or 200 titles for each grade across a wide range of reading levels. These collections are carefully curated to include the types of books every teacher needs as part of a classroom library to nurture the reading development of students in his/her specific grade.



Writers, speakers, and well-respected educators, Kylene Beers and Bob Probst have partnered with American Reading Company to engage students in independent reading and help students read fiction and nonfiction with more enjoyment and deeper understanding in Grades 5-8. Learn more.

Titles in Hook Book Libraries

Because the titles in these leveled basket libraries are continuously changing based on inventory and publisher availability, 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/nonfiction, 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.

We are unable to accept returns or exchanges of any individual titles in the event that a basket collection you receive includes any books that you already own. Please note that eBooks are not included.
