Best Chapter Books

For younger readers making the leap from picture books, we recommend chapter books with pictures to provide a visual break as they learn to focus on more text and bigger words. Older elementary schoolers, in 4th and 5th grade, can typically handle more serious subjects and multiple story lines.
