I Can Read Books

If you're looking for an early reader that's also quality literature, this is it. Many famous children's authors have written for this series including Arnold Lobel, Else Holmelund Minarik, Avi, Peggy Parish, Lillian Hoban, and Syd Hoff, among others.

The stories are fun, kid-friendly, and feature short, easy words and excellent illustrations. Each book is assigned a color coded level. Level 1 (preK-1st grade) is for beginning readers. Level 2 (1st-3rd grade) is reading with help. Level 3 (2nd-4th grade) is for reading alone. Level 4 and the chapter books are for 3rd grade+, and are for advanced readers.

These readers contain actual stories that children will enjoy, rather than simple words strung together. They are books that children can, as they claim, read, and that they will read over and over.

Review by Lauren Shearer
Lauren Shearer writes words for fun and profit. She also makes films, but everyone knows you can't make a profit doing that. Her other hobby is consistently volunteering way too much of her time. You can read more of her reviews here.
