My first grader is learning to read — which is an awesome process to observe. I love that he’s excited about reading and is so proud of himself when he gets through a few sentences all on his own. We’ve been reading to him since he was an infant, and it’s fun to start seeing the roles reversed. I put a poll out on my personal Facebook page for an updated library of books for his age, but with the caveat that I’d enjoy them as well. Here are the top picks from my friends and family, with links below to each title. Happy reading!
