Do you have a beginning reader at home? If so, you’ve probably noticed how challenging it can be to find truly easy books for them to enjoy.
Goldilocks had trouble with more than porridge, chairs, and beds!
When she wandered into the bears’ library, she couldn’t find the right book. One was too easy; the next was too hard. What’s a young reader to do?
At any Central Rappahannock Regional Library branch, there is a solution:
1. Look for spine labels at the bottom of the book that have a yellow glow in the juvenile fiction (chapter book) collection.
2. Notice the size of the print, the white space on the pages, the fun pictures, easier words, and length of the book.
3. Choose one to read!
Princesses do not run. They also don’t hide their frilly, pink dresses in a broom closet, slide down secret chutes, or jump over castle walls. And princesses definitely do not wear black. But Princess Magnolia is no ordinary princess… she’s a monster-fighting superhero in disguise, The Princess in Black!
You are invited to join members of the library's Youth Services Team as they choose the title they think will win this year's Geisel Award.
