Early Readers (Ages 6-9)
Starting at $2,249
In my search for a publishing company, I kept going back to FriesenPress. I certainly made the right decision, and now have a beautiful children's book published. I have had compliments from everyone that has purchased one from me - they love the illustrations.
- Margaret Anne Barrance, author of The Hummingbird Cat's Tale
A child's first steps into independent reading are unforgettable and thrilling – we all have a few titles we can recall struggling through (with a bit of help) while learning to read.
Writing for early readers from ages 6-9 means deftly toeing the line between simple and challenging. Proper word choice is essential for stories in this age range, while illustrations are employed in service of the words rather than the other way around. Our team will assist you in making a child's first steps as a reader assured, not shaky.
