Level B Readers
Cubs at the Zoo is a nonfiction/informational B leveled reader, based on independent evaluation by Fountas & Pinnell using the F&P Text Level Gradient. This book is appropriate for Early Emergent readers (Levels A-C). Level B titles typically feature simple characters and colorful pictures that support the printed text. The vocabulary is already familiar to the reader and most pages have just two to five lines of text, with phrases that are repetitive, to help children build confidence as they read. Level B titles can also be helpful tools in supporting and encouraging students who are struggling or reluctant to read.
Early Emergent Readers
Early Emergent readers benefit from books about familiar topics that use carefully controlled text and repeated vocabulary. Illustrationsare important keys to readers at this level, supporting the decodingof new words. Early Emergent readers are still building a vocabulary of high-frequencywords. Having a large vocabulary of frequently used words enables reading that is more fluent and sounds like natural speaking language.
