Affiliate Links Early readers always need lots of practice reading in books at their just-right reading level. It’s more motivating if you can find books that interest your new readers –that they choose themselves. (If the books are too challenging, read aloud to them and save the challenges for later . . . )

Remember, as you read with your growing readers, encourage all efforts and help your kids with strategies for both decoding words and comprehension.

thorfinn the nicest viking New Choices For Early Readers
Thorfinn the Nicest Viking and the Disgusting Feast
by David MacPhail
BEGINNING CHAPTER BOOK
The Vikings don’t appreciate Thorfinn because he is just too nice to be a Viking. (Vikings aren’t nice.) Hopefully after a successful learn to cook and fishing expedition, he’ll be able to cook for the visiting king and everyone will be happy. The illustrations are quite entertaining.

Sadly, Bea’s best friend and next door neighbor moves away. When a new, mean boy named Bert moves in, Bea survives by drawing pictures of her life and her hopes for the future — including imagining Bert in various horrible geographic places. When her teacher finds Bea’s drawings, instead of getting in trouble, Bea’s artistry is celebrated. I like the diverse main character and the relatable topic.
