Engaging Young Readers

I have been thinking about our young readers and how we can encourage them to enjoy books.  Finding just right books for younger readers (DRA levels 4-16) can be difficult.  The following books are about toys and will appeal to boys and girls.  You can use the links to promote the books and get ideas for using them in your classroom. 
Monkey and Me, by Emily Gravett, is about a little girl and her toy monkey.  The author reads the book aloud here.

Traction Man is Here, by Mini Grey, is a rowdy ride for young readers.  Traction Man is an action figure who takes readers on an adventure within a little boy's imagination.

Cool Cars and Trucks, by Sean Kenny, is a hands-on book for young children who like to build with LEGO’s.  The author talks about the book here.   He has another book, Cool Robots.
