Toddler Reading

Finding books to help your child learn to read and eventually be a successful reader can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. If you’re not sure what books to start with, the library can help. We have a section of very easy reader books that help children who are just starting out on their reading journey. These books take a step-by-step approach with simple illustrations and simple words that focus on repetition. This helps build reading confidence as they practice short vowel sounds, blending, and important sight words. Eventually the books begin to introduce longer and more complex words as readers become better and more confident in their abilities.

Reading is fun and everyone should have a good experience learning to read.  So, check out the very easy reader section at the library as you launch into an enjoyable reading adventure.
