Great Read Alouds: Picks for early readers
Early reader books are a fast-growing genre written to support children in their reading development. They bridge the gap from picture books to chapter books and help children become independent readers. These books also promote confidence and a love of reading.
We have a very rich early reader section in our library. These books are full of sight words and fun, repetitive phrases as well as great pictures and characters your early reader can identify, laugh and enjoy reading with.
The "Growing" books challenge your early reader with more words and smaller print. You can find Barbie, Berenstain Bears, Lego, Amelia Bedelia, Fancy Nancy and some superhero books in this section.
The "Confident" books are a step away from chapter books with one or two paragraphs per page, some of these even have chapters like Nate the Great.
If you have an early reader, please explore our wonderful collection. You can find them between the bus and the fish tank. 🙂 Here are a few new ones I recommend.
