Early Reader Non-fiction (Orange stickers) are not-leveled but are shelved by subject, not by Dewey. For instance, a book about Elephants is cataloged and shelved under Animals.


Picture Books for Early Readers are shelved under E and have no specific sticker—Popular early reader authors are Dr. Seuss, Doreen Cronin, Mo Willems, Laura Numeroff and Alexandra Day. We get new picture books weekly, and those books are featured in a new book area towards the front of room.
