Some organizational tips for this blog:
When I tag a book as books for the very young I’m referring to toddler age or those you might read books with a shorter word count or simpler themes. These books are still wonderful for all ages.
Picture books are illustrated books for children.
Easy readers are those emergent or early chapter books (with short chapters) that children who are becoming fluent readers may like to read on their own. Of course, any book listed on this blog can be read aloud.
Children’s novels are fiction books with eight to twelve-year-old protagonists.
Teen/YA books have teenager protagonists or are classics that are appropriate for older readers.
Nonfiction is self-explanatory.
