Reading Tips
AR Book Find - What level is my book?
If you are looking for a type of book for your child to read, why not start with a "Series" book? These books are usually short, and thus not so daunting for beginner readers. Your child will get to know the characters as they read these books. This familiarity will naturally encourage the reader to begin making inferences and predictions based on what they have learned about the personalities of each character. Here are some "series" books:
