Q. How I can look up chapter books for 6-year-olds?


Come to your local library and check the Early Reader section first. We keep the easiest chapter books there. If you find these are too easy for your child then check the Moving Up section for chapter books next. There are other chapter books in the paperback areas as well, so you will need to ask at the Reference Desk for directions to the chapter books that were created for younger readers, but the following are a few of the titles in series that you would find there. Additionally, you can put "first grade" into our catalog and come up with more, including nonfiction books and picture books for your child.
