Early Bird Readers

Help young readers build literacy skills with decodable readers!

Charming illustrations and engaging storytelling deliver fun narratives. Part of the Early Bird Stories line, Early Bird Readers have been edited and leveled by leading educational consultants to correspond with guided reading levels. The levels are assigned by taking into account the content, language style, layout, and phonics used in each book. Comprehension questions encourage readers to actively engage with the content. A handy color-coded scale helps students find the right book for them.
