Kingfisher Readers

What do you get when you mix Kingfisher's award-winning nonfiction with the developmental advice of experts on early literacy? A dynamic series that hooks the interest of emerging readers with irresistable topics and guides them through five levels of increasing reading challenges as they build confidence and progress toward reading alone. Each book in the series is carefully designed with natual sounding language, visually exciting images that capture attention and keeps the pages turning, and a layout that makes the narrative flow naturally, with clear links between text and images.
