These optional book packs are to be used after the "Emerging Reader Set". They are for use with children who are ready for chapter books with fewer pictures and are ready for more advanced reading material. Average second graders should follow the Emerging Reader's Schedule (listed at www.heartofdakota.com). The list below is for use with Level 2/3 of Drawn into the Heart of Reading. The Level 2 books are for advanced Level 2 readers, and the Level 3 books are for average to advanced Level 3 readers.

In these levels, your child will read the chosen books out loud to you for a total of 15 days for each genre. Each book on the list below has an approximate reading level noting the grade and month next to it. Use this information to choose the set that best suits your child's reading level. Please keep in mind, these specific titles are not needed, but each book was very carefully chosen as an excellent reading selection for the noted reading level.

Our book sets were created to save you time and to help you find quality books at the right reading level.  This is one of the keys to a successful reading experience for your child. You are welcome to use your own book selections if you prefer.

Drawn into the Heart of Reading truly works with any books you choose.
