What does that even mean you may wonder?
These are beautifully illustrated books meant for children 9 years old and up. The stories use more complex vocabulary and themes and they include genres like realistic, historical, fantasy and humor.
Because these books have multi-layered storylines, they encourage critical thinking making them a good choice for a classroom read-aloud and group discussion.
In addition, these books are a wonderful choice to continue reading with your child one-on-one. The story's complexity and detailed illustrations will give you both plenty to talk about.
