8.) What is the difference between the Chapter Book and Unit Collections? There are two major differences. First the type of book differs. The chapter collection is just that – chapter books. The unit collections are longer picture books (for grades 3 and up). The second difference is that the picture book units contain four to six SETS of books on different subjects. They lend themselves to in-depth study of nine different subjects.
9.) What topics does the Unit Collection cover? There are nine units in all: Adventurous Kids, Cinderella Stories from Around the World, Disabilities, Environment, Immigration History, Multicultural (stories of children from different cultures), Pioneer Life, Segregation History, and World War II (from four different perspectives).
10.) Do I have to check out a whole Unit, or can I just use one set of books in a Unit? Sets can be checked out individually. For example, you can just check out Baseball Saved Us from the World War II Unit. You do not need to check out all the sets of books in a Unit.
