Hey everyone!

I thought I'd share some popular children's and young adult book authors with you because, as you already know, reading in English is one of the most enjoyable ways to expand your vocabulary and improve your language skills. When you started reading in Spanish, I'm sure you didn't start with Cervantes. The same goes for English! Start with adapted readers or children's books and then work your way up.

Shel Silverstein

Poems are great because you can read them in one sitting and they can even be helpful for practicing pronunciation, intonation and rhythm when speaking!

Roald Dahl

J.K. Rowling

This is probably still a bit difficult for Basic 2, but I had to include it! 

Lois Lowry
