Beginning Readers

Have you browsed the E Reader section at your favorite library?  These books are designed to help kids who are just starting to read on their own; they use limited vocabularies, word families and easy to read fonts to help support the earliest readers.


Kenny and his Grandmother are regular visitors at SLPL’s Kingshighway branch and were thrilled to learn about the E Reader section!  Is there a beginning reader in your life?  Try out some of these titles together:
