#road2reading Challenge - NCTE finds! 11.28.17

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.
Join in the conversation at #road2reading.

One of my favorite things to do at NCTE is roam the exhibit hall to check out new books and talk to the publishers.  This year on Saturday I was on the lookout for early readers and nonfiction picture books.  Today I am sharing the early readers I found.  Check back tomorrow to see the nonfiction picture books!

  1. Thank you so much, Michele. These look terrific! I really appreciate your tracking down new beginning readers and chapter books. I had fun pulling together mysteries for beginning readers this week. Here's a Pinterest board I put together just for this project: https://www.pinterest.com/maryannscheuer/mysteries-for-young-readers/
