Transitional Fiction

Transitional fiction books are short chapter books that bridge the gap between beginning readers and full-length children's fiction. They are generally less than 100 pages long, have slightly larger print than normal, and often contain illustrations. The list below contains a mixture of individual and series titles. You may check each title's location and availability in the Library's catalog by clicking the title of the book.
