My oldest daughter, Hannah Kate really excelled with reading this past year when she was in Kindergarten. We are continuing with reading throughout the summer, and Taylor is learning to recognize important sight words. I thought I would share what books we have enjoyed, not just this summer, but even since I was just reading to them before bedtime.
First and foremost, the books we enjoy immensely are the Llama Llama books! I love how it takes real life situations and puts them in a fun rhyme for children 2 years of age and up. They have also been great beginning reader books for my 5 year old.
Another set of books my 4.5 year old “diva princess”, Taylor, loves is Pinkalicious. They say they are for 5-7 year olds, but she has been loving them since she was 3. These are about a girl with a BIG imagination, who loves pink, sparkles, princesses, and anything girly! These books also come in “levels” of how hard they are to read, so it’s a great series of books to purchase to “grow” with.
Last, but definitely not least, we Love the Biscuit series! There is a wide variety to choose from, and they are the PERFECT books for beginner readers. My girls’ favorites are “Biscuit Goes to School” and “Biscuit Finds a Friend”.
