First Early Readers

 While all children move through the same stages as they are learning to read, some need different levels or types of support as their building their newly acquired reading skills. We've put together a great list of titles and series that focus on first sight words and rhyming words, supported by large print and pictures that support the text. Additional resources to help you help your young reader are also listed on the First Early Reader list.
