Horn Book Highlights Beginning Readers, plus a 100 Scope Notes' Round Up

Want to take a deeper dive into the definition of the beginning reader format? We here at Guessing Geisel highly recommend Sylvie Shaffer's recent article in The Horn Book Magazine, New for New Readers: What (Exactly) IS an Easy Reader? Sylvie served on the 2018 Geisel Award Committee and has been a guest blogger on Guessing Geisel. The article can also be found in the March/April 2019 print issue of the magazine. 

We were also excited to see that Travis Jonker has posted a round up of forthcoming titles by past Geisel winners and honorees. Are there any on his list you're super excited about? Anything he missed? Share your thoughts in the comments below. 

Are there other excellent blogs or articles out there about beginning readers? We'd love to know about them! Leave us a link in the comments below.
