"Beginning Readers" are books aimed at those who are just learning to read. They have easy to read text accompanied by illustrations that reinforce reading comprehension. These books are meant to instill a love of reading by introducing new, decodable words and by providing a fun, engaging, and relatable story.

The Free Library has just what you need to get your emerging reader started. These books are available both in print and in ebook formats. 

Hello Hedgehog is a new series by Norm Feuti about two friends, Hedgehog and Harry (a guinea pig) as they navigate common children milestones such as riding a bike, having a sleepover, or going to the doctor. The stories are told in a graphic novel format, with full-color illustrations and easy-to-read text in speech bubbles. It’s hard to resist these characters—they're sweet and funny, and the stories provide just the right amount of reassurance.
