We love animals at MaryRuth Books and we bet many of your students do too.  The Let’s Explore set of 6 titles takes young readers on self-guided field trips to learn more about the domestic and wild animals who live at the aquarium, the farm (cats, chickens, cows), the zoo (elephants, penguins, and tortoises), the woods, a local pond (frogs and Canada geese), and even in their own backyards (robins and raccoons)!

The titles in the Let’s Explore can be read by Early Emergent readers (F&P levels A-B, Reading Recovery® levels 2-3). Each of the 6 books also has companion titles in increasing levels to challenge and encourage progressing readers. For readers who enjoy The Farm, the titles in the Favorite Farm Animals set range in levels from B/1 (Horse Colors) to D/5 (Pigs). For fans of At the Zoo, there are books in the At the Zoo Collection that are appropriate for readers as advanced as those reading at the Upper Emergent to Early Fluent levels.

Early Emergent Readers

Early Emergent readers benefit from books about familiar topics, like the Let’s Explore set, that use carefully controlled text and repeated vocabulary. Illustrations are important keys to readers at this level, supporting the decoding of new words. Early Emergent readers are still building a vocabulary of high-frequency words. Having a large vocabulary of frequently used words enables reading that is more fluent and sounds like natural speaking language.

Add a 2-sheet MRB Letter Set to any order for only $1.00 each set

The 8-1/2 x 11″ sheets are printed in 2-colors on sturdy 110# white index stock and designed to be a portable way for students to do letter or word work whether they’re learning at home or in the classroom. The set includes one sheet of upper case and one sheet of lower case letters, plus several blank tiles so the sheets can be customized. Vowels are printed in red. Consonants are printed in blue. The font used for the letter sheets is student-friendly. Printed dashed lines between the individual letter tiles make cutting them out easy.


Nonfiction and Informational Titles

MaryRuth Books offers many fiction and nonfiction/informational leveled readers, suggested and used by Reading Recovery® and Guided Reading educators. Readers at all levels benefit from reading both fiction and nonfiction/informational books. Reading nonfiction provides a different type of literacy benefit to early readers. It helps young students develop background knowledge, which increases their comprehension ability by enabling them to make sense of new ideas. Additionally, informational texts have the potential to motivate students to read more by tapping into their personal interests. Encouraging students to explore a broad array of informational texts can help them see that the real world is as interesting and amazing as any fictional one.
