All journeys have a starting place.
This is a weekly place to find books and tools
that you may use with readers at the start of their reading journey.

It's no secret that Alyson Beecher and I have a shared love for nonfiction books. I find nonfiction to be a surprise - I'm surprised at the new learning I find, I'm surprised at how the information reels me into the book, I'm surprised at how the authors craft their words.
But finding nonfiction for our early readers can be a challenge. Here are a few series I have found that support those readers on the #road2reading. These books have:
- great photographs to support the text
- carefully introduced text - text features that support new words (bold text, definitions supplied, glossaries)
- sentences that are short, but help readers construct new understanding
Here are a few series that I recommend for young readers:
Discover My World series (often found in Scholastic flyers)
Ready to Read series
