Early Reader Books We Use & Love
In our house we are all about reading! I think that building good reading skills at an early age is such an important thing for successful learning. It is so important to have Early Reader Books for your children to fall in love with reading. Making sure that your children are reading the correct level of books for them is so vital for advancing learning. We use several different sets of early reader books in our house.
To check to see what level your books are at your house check out Scholastics Book Wizard.
One of the sets of books we like are BOB Books. They are great for the first steps into reading. Bob Books, Set 1: Beginning Readers You can work on building up to more words through the set. BOB Books website. The web site has a lot of information. There are a lot of different printables you can find on pinterest to go along with your BOB book reading. They also have an app where you can purchase books to download to your Ipad or Android.
First Little Readers
There are books that are made to the guided reading level. First Little Readers Parent Pack: Guided Reading Level A: 25 Irresistible Books That Are Just the Right Level for Beginning Readers is an example. These books aren’t my first choose however they go along with the BOB books and take the guessing game out of picking books.
Dick and Jane
The Dick and Jane books are the books I grew up learning to read with. I love that they are come in several different levels and each story is about family life. We Play (Read With Dick and Jane) is one of the level one books. However they have several sets you can buy. I know for a fact that if this is the only series of books that you buy you can teach your children to read with them.
I See Sam
Now my childrens favorite reading books are I See Sam. They aren’t colorful like Dick and Jane or First Little Readers however my children love the simplicity of the stories and best of all their APP is AMAZING! Being a household who tries to limit our screen time I wasn’t sure if I would like purchasing these book through their app. However, the app is amazing! My childrens favorite feature is that you can press the recording button to record yourself as you read through the book and pay it back at the end. When you download the app you can get the first couple books of each reading level for free to try out.
