Nonfiction books are an essential part of any complete library – at home or in the classroom. Leveled Reader has the nonfiction titles that kids are searching for. Nonfiction titles written by excellent children’s authors and beautifully illustrated, bring the world to your inquisitive kids.

We have a selection of nonfiction readers at Leveled Reader that spans the levels from A-B to Q-R. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

We know how challenging it is to find great nonfiction books at the younger reading levels. We have found the best ones for you! At the A-B level we have an engaging nonfiction book titled Jump, Pup! It’s a delightful first reader full of irresistible action shots of a puppy at play. With one short sentence per page, the photos perfectly illustrate the text. childrens books nonfiction

At the C-D level we offer Sleep, Bear! and Go, Cub! also from National Geographic Kids. Through simple text and vivid photos, kids can follow a bear cub and his family as they prepare to hibernate for the winter. Or they can learn about a lion cub’s day of adventures on the African savanna. childrens books nonfiction

A Butterfly Grows is a very popular title at the E-F level by Stephen Swinburne. Told from the perspective of the caterpillar-in-transition, it uses short sentences and simple vocabulary to tell the story of a metamorphosis. Illustrated with incredible photographs.

In G-H-I Leveled Book Set 8 we have assembled Kit-Kit-Kittens, Hedge-Hedgey-Hedgehogs, Pup-Pup-Puppies, Pig-Piggy-Pigs and Ham-Ham-Hamsters for a thoroughly enjoyable introduction to nonfiction reading.

It can be a bit challenging to find good nonfiction books that are leveled at the A through D levels. But we have found some for the youngest readers. First, we have Chicks! by Sandra Horning in our C-D Set 5, in which a family brings home chicks from a local farm, and shows exactly what is needed to raise chicks. This book is somewhere between fiction and nonfiction, but definitely qualifies as informational text, with its clear step-by-step description of the process, and realistic illustrations. You’ll find On a Farm by Alexa Andrews in A-B Set 5, a very simple first reader with lots of repetition and big, clear photos of farm animals. Also at the A-B level is Jump, Pup! an adorable book all about a puppy’s playful day. It’s published by the National Geographic Society, and has fabulous pictures that illustrate the text perfectly. nonfiction childrens books
