Great Early Elementary Reads

Check out this booklist from the American Library Association - it's also available in the Children's Room. We own almost all of the titles, so take some home today!

The ALSC 2011-2012 School-Age Programs and Services Committee recommends these titles for children who are just learning to read and beginning to read on their own. The books included were published between 2009 and 2011. However, many are part of a larger series that young readers also will enjoy
