Books for beginning readers

Finding books for children who are beginning to read can be a challenge.

The books get more complex as kids move to the next color category. You can search for individual titles in the library catalog:

Each level also has color-coded bags with five fun books and a parents’ guide with ideas for creating a stronger reader. You can place them on hold and check them out like any other item:

Also available in Spanish!

Welcome to Reading is made possible by The Library Foundation.
