1st Grade1st Grade<div class="ExternalClassCF11A8BA21194B26AB1984B9D6DF952C">​Every child progresses at his or her own rate when learning to read. This list includes picture books meant for grown ups to read aloud, as well as a few "beginning readers." When picking books for your child to read, keep in mind the "five finger" test – have your child read a page aloud, if he misses more than five words on a page, the book may be too challenging. Keep it fun, don't let your child get frustrated.<br><br>​<br></div>
