Transitions

Hello there everyone!  It's Shellie and it's time for my Sunday blog. 

Lately, I've been trying to transition our two older boys from our usual picture book stories to beginner chapter books.  I've found that the best "transition chapter books" are a good combination of pictures and text.  It gives our boys a break from just reading and gives them something to look at.  If you have a child in your life who is on the verge of making the leap from picture books to chapter books, here are some good ones we have at the store.


Mercy Watson to the Rescue by Kate DiCamillo

Who is Mercy Watson?  A pig, of course!  She has all sorts of fun adventures in her stories.  The chapters are short and the pictures are darling.  Kids just love these!








Ivy and Bean by Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall

This series is all about two little girls who are best friends.  They have a lot of fun trying to break world records and ghost hunting.  The chapters are a little bit longer than the Mercy Watson series, but not so much as to overwhelm young readers.  Plenty of pictures, too!




A Nest for Celeste by Henry Cole

This a sweet little book about a mouse who loves to weave baskets...but she has to watch out for the sneaky cat of her house.  Beautiful illustrations, my kindergartener loves this one!
