Introducing PRH Education Classroom Libraries

By Luis Diaz | November 10 2020 | General

At PRH Education we believe that all children can learn to read, and access to books is truly key to how students learn to read: proficiently and to read with joy. 

Research shows that reading and literacy directly impacts students’ academic success and personal growth. To help promote the importance of daily independent reading, Penguin Random House Education has launched a new Classroom Library offering for grades PreK-8, with plans to develop additional libraries for High School, Special Education, and ESL/ELL classrooms.

The PRH Education Classroom Libraries, which are curated by renowned educator and literacy expert Laura Robb, offer students access to classic and contemporary authentic texts in both print and eBook formats that are relevant to their varied lives and interests.
