Basal readers are collections of stories used to teach reading skills to children, often found in textbook format. Here is an example of a basal reader:

Basal Reader example call number


The call number for this basal reader is ELA HMH 1 text 1.

  • ELA: English Language Arts

  • HMH: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (publisher)

  • 1: 1st grade

  • text 1: volume 1 of the “text” (student textbook)

Basal readers are in the Idaho preK-12 Adoption Textbooks collection on the 3rd floor.

When you reach the 3rd floor look for the row of books with the Curriculum Collection sign (see photo), and look for the aisle with the Idaho K-12 Textbooks sign.
