#road2reading Challenge - an early reader stack 9.13.18

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 independent reading journey.
Join in the conversation at #road2reading.

My stacks have gotten out of control lately.  Here's a stack of early readers to share!

Kick It, Mo! by David A. Adler
Kick It, Mo!
written by David A. Adler
illustrated by Sam Ricks
Keep these sports books featuring Mo and his diverse cast of teammates coming!  Featuring sight words and pictures that support the text, another win for Mo!
Publishes Sept. 18th

Friends Forever by Derek Anderson     
Croc and Ally:  Friends Forever and Fun, Fun, Fun!
by Derek Anderson
I'm liking this new early chapter book series.  Predictable story lines, sight words, and supported illustrations/text make this series perfect for readers who are beginning their reading independence.  

Barkus Dog Dreams by Patricia MacLachlan
Barkus: Dog Dreams
written by Patricia MacLachlan
illustrated by Marc Boutavant
This is one of those series I have to remind myself that I am not the target audience.  I find the stories sometimes confusing and not interesting, but because there are dogs, it remains a popular series.  I liked the first book more than this one, I am interested in finding out what young readers think of this one.

Fergus and Zeke at the Science Fair by Kate Messner
Fergus and Zeke at the Science Fair
written by Kate Messner
illustrated by Heather Ross
Our two favorite mice are back and this time they are working on class projects for the science fair.  Everyone has a project and Fergus and Zeke get to BE Lucy's project.  While it is fun at first, they both agree they don't want to BE the project they want to be the ones DOING the project.  They figure out a way to do both, but will it work?

And a nonfiction reader.....

Lin-Manuel Miranda by Laurie Calkhoven
You Should Meet: Lin-Manuel Miranda
written by Laurie Calkhoven
illustrated by Alyssa Petersen
Yeah, I couldn't help myself, had to buy this one :)
I even learned a few more things about this amazing musical man - I really can't wait to find out what he does next!
