Fun first reads!

by: 
Marcy, Arvada Library

The "magic" of reading begins with a lot of hard and sometimes frustrating work.

Those first books that a child reads independently should be a taste of the fun and adventure that they now have available to them through books. In our beginning reader section of the library we have many selections that will keep boredom at bay. A librarian can help you navigate the different levels and point you toward a book that is just right for your child. Your new reader will see many of their favorite characters such as Fancy Nancy, Thomas, Barbie and Scooby Doo in our early reader collection. They might make new friends as well, reading the adventures of Henry and Mudge or the mysteries of Cam Jansen or Nate the Great. Here are a few of my favorite series for beginning readers:


Fly Guy makes you laugh out loud in this level 1 series.


Strawberry Shortcake is as sweet as ever in this level 2 series.


Have a little LEGO fan who is beginning to read? We have over a dozen different LEGO readers!

Stop in to your local library today or reserve some of these great titles from home. There is no reason for you or your little reader to ever be bored again.
