Final Instructions:

Like all our lists, we start with the easiest books, and move gradually harder. But probably this list would most interest the first-time readers, as well as those select adults who will never grow up. Have you read 5 books? If so, print yourself a Kids Reading Circle Certificate.

»»To print this list, click on your brower's "file" button in the upper left-hand corner of your screen, and click print.

»»To print the certificate, do the same, except before clicking print, click on "print Preview" and "landscape view". (Sorry if your browser kicks off the background -- it is supposed to print. If it doesn't, feel free to color it yourself.) After printing, fill in your name and facts, and post it proudly on your refrigerator. There will be future contests for those who earn certificates. You are done here -- would you like to visit the early reader list? .
