30+ Great Books That Entice Early Readers

Jul 23, 2020

After years of sitting on your lap as you flipped through picture books, your child is finally growing into an independent reader. This time is crucial because it’s when kids either learn to love reading or start to view it as a chore. 

It can be helpful to begin with the Acorn and Branches lines when choosing books for your early reader. The Acorn books feature easy-to-read text, short-story formats, humor, and full-color artwork on every page. They’re designed to boost reading confidence and fluency, and to plant a love of reading. 

Once your child has mastered Acorn books, they’ll be able to move on to Branches books, which are designed for newly independent readers making the transition to traditional chapter books.
