Hi friends! This is Cosmo, the Library Cat. Do you ever get tired of playing and want to do something relaxing for a while, but can’t think of just what exactly to do? Well, I have just the answer for you: Grab a comfy seat and one of these fun Early Chapter Books. I promise you’ll be running back to the Grand County Public Library for the next book! Our Early Chapter Books are perfect for readers who are new to chapter books since they have larger text, lots of pictures, and aren’t super long.

The “Owl Diaries” series is perfect for children who love friendship stories and animal characters! In the first book, Eva Wingdale gets in over her head when she offers to organize a spring festival at school. Even with her best friend Lucy’s help, there is NO way she will get everything done in time. Will Eva have to ask Sue (a.k.a. Meanie McMeanerson) for help? Or will the festival have to be cancelled? This book is written as Eva’s diary — with owl-dorable color illustrations throughout!

The “Dragon Masters” series has it all: dragons, a Dragon Stone, a king, a wizard, and magic! In the first book in this fully-illustrated series, 8-year-old Drake is snatched up by King Roland’s soldier and taken to the castle where he is to be trained as a Dragon Master. At the castle, he is joined by three other young Dragon Masters-in-training: Ana, Rori, and Bo. The Dragon Masters must learn how to connect with and train their dragons–and they must also uncover their dragons’ special powers. Does Drake have what it takes to be a Dragon Master? What is his dragon’s special power?
