There is something magical about being able to pick up a book and read it on your own. There should be something magical about the first books we give kids to read on their own. Unfortunately, many books for beginning readers lack an interesting story line or information.


If you are looking for interesting books and activities to share with a beginning reader, check out my book lists for early and emergent readers, peruse my book reviews of early readers, follow my blog posts, or click on the activities page for additional ideas that worked for my kids when they were early readers.

If you have ideas that you’d like to share, please consider contacting me or commenting on one of my posts.
