Early Reader Books

Kelly of Big A Little a children's book blog with help from fellow kidlit bloggers has complied a list of early reader titles. Click here for the pdf version of the list that Kelly recommends you can also print, and carry with you to the library or bookstore.

These books can be helpful to preschoolers who are just starting to read - i.e. the 3 to 5 age group, and other kids in the 5 to 7 age group who are stepping into slightly advanced reading levels. Some of these books come in stages as in stage 1, 2, 3 etc. Most local libraries in the U.S. have a seperate aisle for books in the early reader category.

I am sure the list will serve as a great resource for parents looking to find early reader titles at their library and also, if there's a series that your kid particularly enjoys reading, these books can entice them to read more.

On a personal note, my daughter K who just turned five, has been reading quite a few early reader books the last year or so. Early reader books can be lot of fun for your kids if there are characters that they particularly enjoy reading as a series! In our family, we love Little Bear, Arthur, Frog and Toad, Biscuit series to mention a few.

The 'early reader' links don't work. Can the list be uploaded again to the Saffron tree website?
