Early Chapter Books: Great Finds at the Valley Cottage Library

This is a guide to Early Chapter Books for readers transitioning from easy readers to longer chapter books.

These Early Chapter Books have less than 100 pages, lots of pictures, and early-grade appropriate vocabulary.

They are most appealing to children who are reading at a level above typical easy readers, but who have not developed the stamina and vocabulary to access long chapter books.

Many of the books center around themes that are important to children in early elementary school such as making friends and learning about the world.

Several books center on mysteries, adventure, and humor to keep new readers motivated to keep turning those pages! 

In the library, we put a large orange circle sticker on the book spine to help you easily identify these books!
