White Stickers - Pre-emergent books are for the brand new reader. These books contain large print, few words per page and
large pictures. Many pre-emergent readers include a list of the high-frequency words used in the books.
Orange Stickers - Emergent books typically have more text than books at the pre-emergent level but still feature large print and
plenty of white space. Emergent readers have more text to decode and a more complex storyline to follow.
Green Stickers - Books at the early fluent level have smaller type size than pre-emergent and emergent readers, fewer or
smaller pictures and more advanced vocabulary. These books also have a more complicated storyline.
Blue Stickers - Readers at this stage have successfully moved from â€œlearning to readâ€ to â€œreading independentlyâ€. They are
reading the easy reader chapter books and fast approaching the Juvenile Fiction collection.
