We’ve reorganized our level readers for youngsters who are just learning to read!

Our Level readers (easy readers) have been re-cataloged and re-organized into 8 distinct groups base on how difficult they are to read. Level 0 for the easiest books all the way up to level 5+, some of which are almost like chapter books! Let us know if this is beneficial to your browsing experience. We’ve already gotten some positive feedback about it 🙂
