Can anyone give me some good recommendations for 1st grade level readers for my son? We're working our way through Bob books right now, but we'll be done soon and I need some ideas for what to have him read after we're done? Any ideas??


Thanks! :)

I've used the CLP phonics readers in addition to some of the above suggestions. They were what really helped my oldest take off with his reading when he was 6.

Ds enjoyed the Step Into Reading series. We used the suggestions by Tanglewood mentioned above (are still using), and we have been pleased. Ds loves the Frog and Toad series. Arnold Lobel is an engaging writer.
