Looks like a great list, Mia!
I am really enjoying reading this book list. Every single book has something great about it!
Lots of wonderful books to choose from here!
Oh!! Such a wonderful list!!! I can’t wait to share the winners on February 14th!!!
So cool that you judge the Cybils! I am going to check out ALL of these easy readers for my son!
They are so great. I wish I could tell you which ones are my favs but I can’t until the winners are announced on Feb 14th. But read them all; you will not be disappointed. My only observation is that the easy readers range in age from very simple short books to a kind of easy chapter book … still very short but with distinct chapters and more words. They are all great though!
I love the Elephant and Piggie books. They are so much fun to read aloud.
We love Elephant and Piggie so much too!!!
