Check out our Spanish Leveled Readers!

We are excited to announce the launch of the complete Spanish Leveled Readers book collection in the Pawling Library!

This collection is designed for anyone learning to read in Spanish, no matter the age.

This collection of over 100 children’s books has been organized using the same program that the Pawling School district uses to level books for student reading. New readers start at Level A, with short stories using simple vocabulary, and work their way through the alphabet. The collection features books in levels A-M using the Fountas and Pinnell leveling system. Many of the books are bilingual, in Spanish and English, and are a great tool for continuing Spanish or bilingual language literacy.

“We added the collection because we want our community to know that language literacy is important no matter what language you speak. Many of the literacy skills needed to be a strong reader and speaker are the same in English and Spanish, and it’s common that the stronger a child’s Spanish literacy, the stronger their English literacy will be as well,” says Children’s Programs Coordinator, Neena McBaer. “That’s just one of the many benefits of learning to be bilingual at a young age.”

Located by the water cooler, in the Spanish language section, these books are now available for check out. For more information, please check out the Spanish leveled reading page of our website.
