Kids: Books and Reading: Easy Readers

[MORE COMING SOON]

EASY READERS FOR TRUE BEGINNERS

Different publishers level books differently: a "Level One," for many presses, is far too wordy for a beginner. Sometimes publishers inconsistently level even their own books! Here's a sampling of some books for true beginners, with fewer and shorter words.
