Getting to Grips with Reading

This list is intended for emerging readers in years 3 or 4, who are just beginning to manage simple chapter books on their own.

These books are generally shorter and have simpler language than the ‘Must-Have’ books for year 3.

The titles aim to grab the reader’s attention with simple but exciting stories, and plenty of accompanying illustrations to break up the text.  All the books here have no more than half a page of text (or about 8 lines) per page.

Emerging readers might also enjoy ‘Picture Books for Years 3 & 4’.
