EASY READERS AT EVERGREEN VALLEY COLLEGE LIBRARY
Easy reader books are beginning reader books that second language learners will find helpful for building basic vocabularies and providing context for new words. These books help encourage and strengthen reading skills. Many publishers have easy reader series with the reading level noted, and oftentimes there will be multiple reading levels for easy readers. This will help readers to easily distinguish appropriate books based on the level at which one is reading. To figure out what the various reading levels mean, visit the publishers' websites or check inside the books.
