A Mighty Girl's top 40 girl-empowering early chapter books for emerging readers.
There's little that compares with the amazing moment when a young reader realizes she can read on her own! It's a tremendous accomplishment when a child gets through her own book from cover to cover. And since reading is a skill, it's particularly important for emerging readers to practice — both during the school year and over the summer.
The best way to encourage that practice is to fill your young reader's shelves with fun, exciting, and just-challenging-enough books to read, but finding those books — especially girl-empowering titles — can often be difficult. Sometimes you need a leveled reader that suits your child's ability, and sometimes you're looking for the perfect early chapter book. Whatever you're looking for, you want it to be entertaining enough to catch their attention but of sufficient quality to properly exercise their reading skills.
With that in mind, in our new addition to our "Summer Reading Series," we're showcasing a selection of forty of our favorite Mighty Girl books for emerging readers. These engaging stories range from longer traditional picture books, to hybrids with lots of pictures and short chapters, to true early chapter books. Kids will love the exciting stories — both fiction and non-fiction — that are just right for their level; parents will love that their kids will be asking for just a few more minutes to read!
