Summer reading is one of my very favorite things—and while I love a good read while sitting on the beach, that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m passionate about making sure my kids read enough books in the summer to keep their reading skills fresh for the next school year.
New readers—like the kids that have just graduated from Kindergarten—are more at risk for the summer slide than older kids. It’s super important that your rising first grader practices reading during the summer so that they don’t fall behind before school even starts.
I’ve compiled a book list for first grade readers that contains books of all types—classics, newer books, funny books, historical books, serious books, etc. I am certain you’ll be able to find plenty of books on this list that your first grader will love!
I also have a first grade reading list pdf available for download.Click here to print out the listand put it into your library bag so you and your first grader are ready for some wonderful summer reading!
Consider purchasing a few favorites every year. Having lots of reading material available in the home is so important to raise kids who love reading!
