There are many times in life when you are “between” things. Your pants are too short, and the next size up is too long. This can be frustrating. Well, reading is no different; at some point a child is between the simpler beginning-to-read titles and the full-length juvenile fiction. (Though no one is EVER too old for a picture book!) We don’t want children to lose momentum in their reading journey, but sometimes transition means a few physical steps back and forth between the Easy section and the Juvenile section to make sure the perfect book is found. Here are a few titles to get you started:
- “Amber Brown Is Not a Crayon” by Paula Danziger
- “Clementine” by Sara Pennypacker
- “26 Fairmount Avenue” by Tomie De Paola.
