The Diversity 2 Collection (Grade 2 Six-Packs)

SongLake Books is proud to present its newest Diversity collections.  We are the only company that offers leveled book sets with titles from 9 publishers that spotlight diverse races, cultures, and ethnicities.

At the K-2 level, most diverse books are "read-to's," but our diverse books are designed for reading instruction and independent reading.  We have reviewed hundreds of books and purposefully selected ones that portray children who are underrepresented in their schools' reading materials.

In researching the meaning of "diversity" as it pertains to early children's literature, we found no consensus.  But educators all agree that children who see themselves in print and with similar life experiences are more likely to become successful and enthusiastic readers.

Books in the Diversity 2 Collection span guided reading levels J–M to meet the varied needs of students found in a typical Grade 2 classroom.  The goal is to have second grade students exit this grade at a level M instructional level.

Our Diversity 2 Collection contains 150 books: 6 copies each of 24 Guided Reading titles from 9 leading publishers plus 6 copies of Before It Wriggles Away, a biography of Janet Wong, author of Apple Pie Fourth of July.  Books are organized into guided reading sets for classrooms, Title I, and new federal programs such as ESSA, CCSS, et al.  They are also ideal for bookrooms.

Most titles included in this collection can be found in Fountas & Pinnell's Booklist, now found online.  Each collection comes with two lists.  One list is arranged by levels.  The other list is arranged alphabetically.

As with each of our collections, the Diversity 2 Collection is affordably priced below retail with no additional shipping or handling charges.  This is truly a remarkable value for a well-designed collection from multiple publishers.
