Carousel Readers is a series of books written especially for at-risk first grade students. Since many of the books used in emergent reading original from outside the United States, Carousel Readers has the distinction of being a series that was conceived and created by teachers in the United States who are familiar with the needs of a very special group of children.

The primary objective of this series is to provide at-risk readers with interesting reading materials that reflect their everyday experiences, captivate their imaginations, and help them develop strategies that will enable them to become independent readers.

While Carousel Readers will be ideally suited to the strengths and weaknesses of Reading Recovery students, the books in the series are also suitable for early intervention with at-risk readers in Title I and elementary-level ESL/LEP programs as well as in any classroom that uses Guided Reading strategies. As a collection, all of the books in the Carousel Readers series make good supplementary reading materials for any kindergarten or first grade classroom and for any students who are having difficulty making the transition to being effective literacy learners.
