Children's Books with Lots of Words

A first chapter book is often a child’s first real foray into reading books without full-color illustrations.

It can be a very exciting time in a child’s life when they get to go the section in the bookstore or library that houses the big-girl and big-boy books. The subject matter is more mature, and the stories in first chapter books are more complex — as are the characters and their relationships with one another.

Most, if they are illustrated at all, contain a few black-and-white images scattered randomly throughout. The plots are more complicated, and the pacing is maintained much more directly through story developments and conflict than through illustration or subtle suggestion.
