Books for Early readers
- Henry And Mudge First Book We LOVE this series! They are sweet but still interesting enough for an action loving boy.
- Frog and Toad Are Friends (I Can Read Book 2) Classics!
- Little Bear (An I Can Read Book) Classic and full of healthy adventure!
- Harry and the Lady Next Door (I Can Read Book 1) If your kids like dogs this is a great series.
- Corduroy The original is the best but we have read and enjoyed a few others. Nice to see such a classic with a Child who does not look just like me and my son!
- The Littles And Their Amazing New Friend These are so fun! We are really into this series right now. Josh has no trouble reading and they are silly but in a nice clean wholesome way!
- Star Wars: Clone Wars: Watch Out for Jabba the Hutt! (DK READERS) What can I say...he loves it! This one actually is not too bad. It just talks about the characters that Anakin meets. Nothing scary...the title is a bit of a mystery!
- If You Give a Moose a Muffin (If You Give...) We enjoy all of the If you give a books. They are fun and silly and right at Josh's level.
- Many other picture books that we had previously read aloud.
Chapter Books we read/have read to him
- Nate the Great These are nice mystery books that most children will enjoy. Nate is a great, quirky character that makes even Mommies and Daddies laugh! Josh can probably read these now but we have not tried.
- Magic Tree House There are tons of these and they are really fun to read. Not too mention they teach geography and history. I have learned a ton myself!
- Encyclopedia Brown We have read a few of these short chapter books. They are cute detective books (similar to Nate the great books).
- Geronimo Stilton Books The fun part of these books are that the pages are FILLED with little illustrations, even among the print. Fun to read together and fairly silly. Geronimo is a mouse who is a reporter at a newspaper who is often sent on fun adventures.
