The Books for Young Learners Teacher Resource by Margaret Mooney
offers a wealth of information on the unique features of each book. Sample questions and prompts help teachers introduce and support students through some of the content and some of the skills and understandings that they need when reading for meaning.

Before publishing, a book is first trialed in a black and white version with teachers and children in American schools. Results of the trialing lead to refinement in text and illustrations, and assignment of a book level.

The trialing also provides data used to identify each book for shared, guided, and independent reading. For more detailed information about each book in the collection see the Levels and Approaches Chart.

Books for Young Learners offers variety of trim size and formats across many genres of writing. The books are a uniformly high quality exploration of topics of interest to young children worldwide.
