Best of the First Readers

Theodore Deisel Award

The Geisel Award is given to the best books for those kids just starting to read on their own, sometimes called “First Readers”, “Step Readers”, or “Emergent Readers”. These are books with lots of pictures, simple words, and few words on a page. Most of us know of these from some of Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss) books such as “Hop on Pop” and “The Foot Book”. This year’s winners were announced in January. See this year’s winners at:
