It’s that time of year for… chapter books! Here are some great series that hook emerging readers into a lifetime of reading.
Reading aloud chapter books with your child is a great way to end your day together and also develops important comprehension skills. Chapter books have just a few illustrations so your child can practice visualizing the story events. These books can also enrich vocabulary and present interesting characters that change in surprising ways. Some of these Level J books might be close or right at your child’s level.
Look for these chapter book series at the library, bookstore or in future book orders. (You can always search for more titles online when buying books through our class book orders.)
You can also find more titles with the online tool Book Wizard. Use the Guided Reading and Subject tabs to refine your search.
