Early Readers

The Early Readers category is included as a genre to help users looking for authors who write well within “learning to read series”. The list is representative rather than exhaustive. Those authors who are flagged in the A-Z list write good examples of stories with carefully chosen vocabulary and with plot lines to encourage early readers.
