Fall is here, children are going back to school, or perhaps starting Kindergarten. For these kids, books will be a big part of their school day and those that are just beginning to read have so many books available to them that help them practice their reading. Many teachers want their students to read 15-20 minutes at home every day. We have a wonderful area in the library dedicated to beginning readers. These books provide a basic introduction to reading and vary in reading levels. These stories are told with few words, repeated over and over. Simple sight words and phonics are introduced. I have recently purchased many new titles to our already popular collection.
Here are some of my favorites in the Easy Reader collection –
Jewels for a Princess by Ruth Homberg.
Join Ariel, Cinderella, Tiara, Rapunzel, Aurora and Jasmine as they learn that friendships are the most precious treasure of all.
The Rainbow Fairies by Daisy Meadows.
Their early readers debut! A super popular paperback series, now for 1st and 2nd graders. Meet the 7 colorful sisters and visit Fairyland, their home – you’ll never want to leave!
The Perfect Pumpkin Hunt by Gail Herman.
Helping prepare for the Fall Ball in Pixie Hollow, Prilla is asked to find the perfct pumpkin but finds it harder than she expected. Girls wil love to read with Tinker Bell and the Disney Fairies.
Trains! by Susan E. Goodman.
This book introduces the history of trains of all shapes and sizes and doing what they do best: hauling freight, carrying passengers and zooming at high speeds!
Gus Makes a Gift by Frank Remkiewics.
From the bestselling aithor of the FROGGY picture books comes a sweet story of Gus the rhinoceros, planning to make a special Mother’s Day gift during art time at school.
