Beginning Chapter Books

Junie B Jones book coverIs your child reading titles such as Junie B. Jones and the Magic Tree House series?  Do you have trouble finding appropriate level titles for them?  We’ve created a change in the Children’s Room that we are hoping will make finding these titles a lot easier!  We now have a category for JFIRST CHAPTER books.  They are shelved on the aisle next to the windows, near the JE EASY READER books.  This makes for a natural progression from JE GRADE 1, to JE EASY READER to JFIRST CHAPTER books.  Let us know what you think!
