The Reading Room, available with Raz-Kids and Raz-Plus, allows teachers to provide their students with additional resources. For Raz-Kids, this includes extra leveled books in English, Spanish, and French, plus fiction series, poetry, and song books. The Raz-Plus Reading Room includes all of the Raz-Kids resources, with even more leveled books, packs and passages, high-frequency word books, and much more.
