Books for Younger Readers

We want younger readers and even pre-readers to enjoy Tosa’s All-City Read too. Consider exploring the books below so your youngsters can read and talk about some of the same themes that appear in our adult book. These books are available at the Wauwatosa Public Library and at The Little Read Book on State Street in the Village.

High school readers will enjoy the themes and characters in One Two Three.
