Who was your favorite children’s book character?
From a spider named Charlotte to a curious monkey named George, we all have characters we loved as kids. Our Character/Author Collections feature relatable fictional characters to spark students’ interest and keep them reading—and the benefits are numerous.

When students work to understand people’s feelings and thoughts in books, they can do the same with people in their lives.
