Easy readers (aka "step" or "level" readers) are the titles children check out when they're interested in learning to read independently from an adult. In line with their name, these books often sport an assigned "level" on their front covers or spines. As the designations increase in value (they often range from PreK for fledgling readers and work their way up to Level 3 for those children able to read whole paragraphs on their own), the difficulty level of the book's reading content becomes more complex. Like stepping stones across a babbling brook, easy readers are meant to smoothly guide children through the transitional process of becoming independently literate.
