Ready, Steady, Strong! Building a reader just got easier!

We have an impressive collection of fiction for children, and the choices can seem endless. While options are always a good thing, sometimes too many can be overwhelming! And when your child is looking for their “just right” book, shelf upon shelf of selection may be downright off-putting. So, we have re-organized our fiction collection into three easy-to-navigate groups!



Beginning Readers: Letter identification, sight words, simple sentences. Phonics-based readers perfect for the Kindergarten through First Grade set.



Easy Readers: More complex sentence structure and vocabulary, paragraphs and even chapters are introduced in this level. Second and Third graders ready for independent reading can call this collection theirs!



J Fiction: Full chapters for sustained independent reading, with longer page length per book and deeper plot lines. Juvenile fiction titles are geared to those in grades 4 – 6.



How did we decide what goes where? Ms. Cathy used tried-and-true leveling methods including Lexile and Guided Reading Levels to determine where a title would be best placed. Our fiction collection is STILL impressive, but now its also simpler to navigate!
