Juggling Common Core? Amicus can help balance your collection.
If your state has adopted the Common Core State Standards, you may be asking: What's next? How do I get our youngest students to read and understand nonfiction? Amicus says: Keep it playful and make it fun! Starting with grades K–1, we've got books with beautiful photos, fascinating facts, and great storytelling that will give kids lots of practice reading informational text.
