Ages 6-9

This age range covers books for very beginning readers, very early chapter books, and picture books (illustrated books) with longer, more complex text than most of the leveled readers and chapter books. For fluency as well as enjoyment, we at Spellbound strongly suggest encouraging kids at this stage to read from all three categories interchangeably and not hurrying them out of illustrated books, for instance. They may read the other categories fluently but still need help from you with the more complex words and sentences in the illustrated books. Many illustrated books are specifically written for this age, or even kids ages 8-10 and up. The presence of pictures does not mean the absence of challenging text!
