Danny enjoys spending time outside with nature, his friends, and his family. In My Yard, from the nonfiction series In My Yard, Danny explores his yard, discovering other animals who call it their home too. Other titles in the In My Yard Set include The Little Raccoon in My Yard and The Robins in My Yard.

In My Yard, part of the In My Yard Set, is a nonfiction/informational B leveled reader, based on independent evaluation by Fountas & Pinnell using the F&P Text Level Gradient. The 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.

Early Emergent readers benefit from books about familiar topics that use carefully controlled text and repeated vocabulary. Illustrations are important keys to readers at this level, supporting the decoding of new words. Early Emergent readers are still building a vocabulary of high-frequency words. Having a large vocabulary of frequently used words enables reading that is more fluent and sounds like natural speaking language. Developing readers should be reading both fiction and nonfiction/informational books. Reading nonfiction helps young students develop background knowledge, which increases their comprehension ability by enabling them to make sense of new ideas. Additionally, informational texts have the potential to motivate students to read more by tapping into their personal interests.

MaryRuth Books offers many fiction and nonfiction/informational leveled readers, suggested and used by Reading Recovery® and Guided Reading educators when teaching Early Emergent readers. Level B titles can also be helpful tools in supporting and encouraging students who are struggling or reluctant to read.
