Here at 5SLL, we’ve worked hard to choose the best literature for our program. For us, this means that the books have a wide variety of publishing dates, themes, and styles. It also means that they are popular, easy to find, and have won awards.
We have several Newberry Award winners and Reading Rainbow books as the foundation of our lessons. However, the best part of these lessons is that you don’t need to purchase every single book we suggest. In addition to checking with your local library, in many cases, you can find YouTube videos of people reading the stories aloud.
