EZ Reader Program!

Wednesdays ~ 10:00am

May 5 - May 26, 2021


Each Wednesday, the library will premiere a video on the Children's Room Facebook page. Mrs Israel will take a deep dive into EZ Reader books which are specially designed for emergent readers. 

She will reveal the unique elements of these books as well as ideas that will help caregivers to understand and guide their children in becoming independent readers.

She will share some treasured authors and their characters such as: 
  • Alyssa Satin Capucilli (Biscuit)
  • Syd Hoff (Danny and the Dinosaur) 
  • Arnold Lobel (Frog and Toad) 
  • Jean Van Leeuwen (Oliver and Amanda Pig)
  • Cynthia Rylant (Henry and Mudge, Mr. Putter and Tabby)     


You can watch the videos any time after the release date.
