I've been reading early chapter books like crazy to whittle down the list of top 5 early chapter book nominations for the Cybils Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literaray Awards. I recommend looking in the book to see for yourself if it looks like a good fit for your child's reading level. Have your child do the 5 Finger Test with a page in the book to get a more accurate idea if it's a "just right book."
