Recommended Books for Kids In First Grade

As the child starts learning to read, practice is important. Choose books for them to successfully read by themselves but also continue to read-aloud and team-read (‘you read a page, then I’ll read a page’). In the Children’s Room there are many Easy Readers (ER’s) to choose from. Keep reading run!
