We Both Read

The New Red Bed (We Both Read)

Way back when (an eyeblink ago)
when my nine year old
was four I looked for good books
to read with him and found the
We Both Read series.

The psychologist had said
he'd be reading at age three.
That didn't happen, but
he was a bit ahead
of the curve.

The We Both Read
series starts at a K level
and goes up. Titles include
simple stories and non-fiction
about bugs and and stars.
About Bugs (We Both Read)

My boy liked the
You Read to Me, I'll Read to You
series more later, in
1st grade and still reads those
books to himself sometimes. 

You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Scary Tales to Read Together
They have more words
per page and sidebar pictures 
instead of full page illustrations.

I didn't think about that
at the time, but looking
back I think that's part
of the reason my kid
liked the We Both Read
series more initially.

I wish I could make
the world more easily
understandable for all
our kids. But finding the 
right books is a start.
