I Can Read Carnival for New Readers - June 2012

Welcome to the June version of the I Can Read Feast for New Readers! This is the first time Perogies & Gyoza is hosting this meme dedicated to emerging and developing readers, but I am a faithful reader of it every month.

Over three days (June 13-15) we will be talking about easy readers and short chapter books. Keep coming back for book reviews for easy reader, short and illustrated chapter books, as well as tips and ideas for nurturing the developing bookworms. If you have some of your own, please add a link to the comments or email me so I can add it to the body of the post.

Are you interested in hosting this or want to see who will host next month? Check out the link to Terry Doherty's site!

Katy at Library Mama introduces two titles from a phonics series, Puff Flies and Queen Ella's Feet. Puff the chubby baby dragon is really adorable.

Jean Little Library presents a new chapter series called Hooey Higgins. The first is Hooey Higgins and the Shark and I can see why this humorous book is so appealing to youngsters!

Anastasia Suen found a book that blends facts and fun in a cute biography, Francis Key's Star-Spangled Banner, which is a Level 3 reader.

My contribution for this is the lovely Plant a Kiss from Amy Krause Rosenthal and Peter H Reynolds. So easy to read, and a heartwarming story about love and gardening.


  1. Hooray for new readers!
    I recently found this fun easy reader series:

  2. I - and all my young patrons - adore this new beginning chapter book series from Steve Voake, Hooey Higgins.


  3. Ah! I've been purchasing easy readers for my library system in the past few months (and consequently been posting more reviews for that age level) This carnival appears to be very timely (at least for me)

    Thanks for posting the heads-up.

    1. What are you buying? Share please, Madigan!

  4. For Flag Day I shared this Level 3 easy reader biography: Francis Scott Key's Star-Spangled Banner by Monica Kulling (Author) and Richard Walz (Illustrator)
