Spring is the season for planting gardens, watching baby animals grow, playing outside, and finding bugs. Leveled Reader has a variety of enticing spring books at various reading levels. Take a look at these picks for your young readers.
Lots of families plant gardens in the spring. Seed to Plant (L-M) is a beautiful nonfiction reader that explains where plants come from and how they grow. The bright, clear photos in this book nicely illustrate the concepts. The Little Critter story, A Green, Green Garden (E-F) shows how the family plants a garden, then waters and weeds and waits for it to grow vegetables. This one has the entertaining illustrations that we’ve come to expect from the Little Critter series.
Spring is butterfly season. The nonfiction reader, A Butterfly Grows (E-F), has always been a very popular title. It is hard to find nonfiction titles at such an early level, but this one is stellar. With its crystal clear photos and simple, yet informative text, this is a reader that belongs in every classroom and home library. Pair it with Butterfly Garden (G-H-I), in which Mrs. Connor’s first grade class watches their caterpillars become butterflies. It perfectly captures the excitement of the children’s anticipation as they wait to see the butterflies appear.
It just wouldn’t be spring without baby animals. We offer Chicks! a book at the C-D level, about a family who brings home a box of fuzzy little chicks, and watches them grow into adult chickens who then lay eggs of their own. And you definitely won’t want to miss the adorable nonfiction reader, Kit-Kit-Kittens (G-H-I), filled with fun facts about how kittens grow into cats, and how to care for them.… Continue reading
