LESELØVE – NORWAY'S MOST POPULAR EASY READS The first Leseløve (Reading Lion) was published in 1988. More than 30 years later, Leseløve remains Norway's strongest brand in the genre of easy reads. In Norway, these books have as natural a place in any child's rucksack as their lunch box and pencil case. Leseløver have kept the youngest readers up way past their bedtime, and they have made countless children proud to have read a book themselves. The Reading Lion books are developed to aid children in the process of learning to read, with short sentences, large fonts and rich illustrations. There is great variety in the stories and content, as the series aims to awaken the reader’s interest - whether the book is about animal facts, love, football, suspense and monsters, nasty things, or even jokes and quizzes. When the content is engaging, it becomes so much easier to learn how to read! The series is divided by age and literacy, but as we know, children are very different. Some learn letters and read well before they start school. Others need a little longer, and it can take several years before they crack the code. The Reading Lion books are aimed at children of different ages and levels of reading. Therefore, the books vary in length, content and genre. There are three categories in the Reading Lion-universe.


FIRST LEVEL: LION CUB (approx. 4 to 7 years) The books marked Lion Cub have only one sentence on each page. Perfect for new readers who have just started spelling words to be able to form an entire sentence. Finishing a Lion Cub can be the child's first experience of completing a whole book on their own.

SECOND LEVEL: MY FIRST READING LION (approx. 6 to 9 years) Suitable for those who have learned the letters and can read a little. These books gradually increase their difficulty level, at a pace the reader will barely notice.

FINAL LEVEL: READING LION (approx. 7 to 11 years) The reading lions are easy to read, with short lines and large font. The stories vary in length.

There are fiction and non-fiction titles for each lever, but all with the same aim: To create interest in their target group, and encourage to the joy of reading. 5
