Books are arranged in the following groups for EMR students: Group I contains approximately 84 entries for students 6 to 9 years of age; Group II lists approximately 81 stories and books of information for students 10 to 12 years of age; and Group III lists approximately 35 stories and books of information for adolescents 12 to 15 years of age. Listed separately for TMR students 11 to 15 years of age are approximately 43 books. The books are listed alphabetically by title within each group. It is explained that books for EMR students needing an introduction by the teacher, librarian, or parent are indicated by an asterisk and that no asterisks accompany books for the TMR students, who always need an introduction to a book, or story.
