Great Books I Might Recommend For a Beginning Reader

This is what I do every day.

I recommend books to beginning readers. I'm a school librarian. Our school has students who are PreK to second grade. Everyone at my school is a beginning reader.

Here are some that I've recommended this year with good results:

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Confidence builder.

This is Not My Hat and I Want My Hat Back. The author came to our school last year and our kids are now his biggest fans.

Press Here. Interactive.

All the Elephant & Piggie books. Goofy funny.

All the Fly Guy books. It's a chapter book, with real chapters. But readable.

The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow. Looks like a big thick book but it only has a few words on each page. And it's funny.

Frog and Toad books. Real chapter books.

 I bet you have recommendations for me, too. Please share them. I always need recommendations for great books for early readers.


  1. Great list! I remember Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? xD

    My TTT

  2. :') I love this list. I hope Frog and Toad books will remain popular choices in future generations to come because they played such a big role in my childhood. Same with Eric Carl books. So good to meet a librarian! I've always loved my school librarians.

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. Great list. My son has read quite a few of these as he is at the beginner reading stage as well. I love that you made this list geared towards the youngest readers out there.
    My TTT.

  4. I love Press Here! It's such a unique book.

  5. What a fun list..even though I've never read any of the books. :) And thank you for stopping by my TTT! :)

  6. Love posts like this! It's great to encourage youngsters to get into reading early :D

  7. A perfect Top Ten subject list for you. I'm familiar with most of these books, but haven't read all of those. Nice to see an Aussie make the list too!

  8. I just ordered a whole bunch of Andy Griffiths books for my school library. Very popular.

  9. I love reading children's books to my little sisters, so this list is perfect for me. I also remember reading some of these when I was younger, which is bringing back nostalgia.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT and sorry for taking a few days to return the favor!

  10. The books look so amazing! Great choices!

  11. those are so great. frog and toad was my favorite as a kid. I love your recommendations!
