Beginning reading books, often called easy readers, can be boring. With a controlled vocabulary, repetition and built for increasing fluency it’s a challenge to write a truly fascinating story. Below are some series boys learning to read like.
Fly Guy by Tedd Arnold
Elephant and Piggie by Mo Willems
Henry and Mudge by Cynthia Rylant and illustrated by Sucie Stevenson
Mr Putter and Tabby by Cynthia Rylant and illustrated by Arthur Howard
In the past few years, publishers have stepped up publication of non-fiction easy readers. I’ll do a post about those soon. But wanted you to know that is an option for those boys you know who are mostly interested in stories about real things.
Would love input on more ideas of easy readers that boys enjoy. Any suggestions?
