Books for Reluctant Readers in 
Kindergarten and First Grade


Read this book over and over again.

This is the first in a series of picture books.  Start with Pinkalicious and go from there when she falls in love with this one. 

Mo Willems has a series of Pigeon books.  These appeal to everyone and fun to read aloud. 

First Grade

This series has both fiction and non-fiction books that are great.

A great series with pictures in a "early chapter book" format. Very well written. 

This is the first book of many great picture books and early chapter books.  

Almost all of these books are the first of a series.  Getting kids reading and enjoying a series is a way to get them reading all summer long. 

Happy Summer Reading even for Reluctant Readers
