Unlike picture books for younger readers, a chapter book tells the story primarily through prose, rather than pictures. Unlike books for older readers, chapter books contain plentiful illustrations. The name refers to the fact that the stories are usually divided into short chapters, which provide children with opportunities to stop and resume reading if their attention spans are not long enough to finish the book in one sitting. Chapter books are usually works of fiction of moderate length and complexity.

Anna is lucky…more
Anna is lucky to have two best friends—it makes everything twice as fun. She’s excited to go with both Sadie and Isabel on their class trip to the zoo.
But when Anna’s two best friends start choosing opposite sides on everything, Anna feels caught in the middle. Sadie wants Anna to see the spiny anteater with her, but Isabel wants to visit the tortoise instead. When Isabel pulls Anna toward the camel house, Sadie yanks her toward the giraffes. It’s like they’re playing a game of tug-of-war and Anna is the rope!
How can Anna keep the peace without causing double trouble?
The second book in a fun new series from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. Perfect for #kidlit fans of all ages, especially readers ages 6-10. [close]
