The Hoover Public Library has a Beginning Reader section for kids who are just learning to read (or reading very well as long as there aren't chapters). We also have a First Chapter section for when you make the reading jump to thicker books. But that can be a VERY BIG jump. Luckily, we have several series in Scholastic's Branches collection. These books are meant to bridge the gap between leveled readers and traditional chapter books. You can find them in the First Chapter section. Just look for the purple stickers.
