Summer is halfway over. If you intended to read with your kindergartener and haven’t started, don’t panic. Summer Reading for Beginning Readers.jpegBelow is a list of great books for reading to children in the preschool through first grade years.

The titles introduce the imaginative world in which great literature pulls the reader, and helps children develop the desire to read simply for the pleasure of reading.

Each of the books will captivate most children and truly spark their interest in reading. Many children will request the books to be read to them over and over again. These are titles I read to my students and my daughter. 

Even if your child has begun to read, you should still read to them.  I still read to my daughter, and she is 11-years-old. Children who are read to develop a deeper love for reading, and it is a great bonding time.

Find these books and enjoy the time reading with you child.
