I polled my three kids to jog their memory of what the read aloud books were in first grade. Grasshopper and Sensei is starting high school this year, but she remembered this funny poetry book that her first grade teacher introduced her to by way of read aloud. There really was a real Miss Rumphius, who scattered Lupine seeds everywhere she went in Maine. Grasshopper and Sensei’s teacher used to sing and dance using a giant version of this book.
I think it’s important for kids to see themselves in books and to celebrate the different kinds of ethnic food that they might eat at home. Not every day at school is a good one, but there’s always the next day which will be better. PickyKidPix generally never reads a book twice, but in this case, after her teacher read it aloud, she insisted on checking it out from the library. All three of my kids enjoyed the My Father’s Dragon trilogy which they were read to at school. Exploring the woods at night with your dad to find owls was never more lyrically told but Jane Yolen has a special gift for this. Emily Arnold McCully’s picture books are all wonderful and this first book in the Mirette series is a great introduction to her work. A magic coin that grants half a wish sparks an adventure during an otherwise boring summer for vacationing cousins.

I think I mostly read aloud to my kids in first grade … it’s such a big leap to independent reading that year! Thanks for a great list, it’s brilliant to see diverse books being championed, some of these will be great for me to read with my book-loving nieces.
Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein are pretty much the only poetry books I can get my kids to read!

As my kiddo was learning to read I found that he benefited from some extra practice with the most commonly used words. Did you know that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get some fun, memorable Disney souvenirs ? Book reports are a great way for kids to recall what they’ve read, help with reading comprehension, and improve writing too. Help kids learn using the hundreds chart in a variety of fun, creative math activities for kids. We had one wonderful first grade teacher twice, and PickyKidPix was even able to loop with her for second grade too!
But often, picture books have a richer vocabulary and a more interesting story so this list includes books that teach  about compassion, entertain and mesmerize.
In One Green Apple, Farah, a young Muslim immigrant finds a way to connect with her classmates on a school field trip to an apple farm, even though she doesn’t realize that green apples are sour. This picture book shows a multi-generation household with the grandfather’s talent for eating Roti (an Indian flatbread) that makes him as strong as a tiger. But her mother has a secret; her African-American hair is special and beautiful and can be styled in a myriad of ways.
She liked the story of the animals but bonus points for the rich vocabulary that Rylant sneaks into this chapter book. Their adventures end up with real life changes as they stumble upon the perfect husband for their widowed mother. I bought the entire series of Nancy Drew when my oldest was very young because it was at Costco and very reasonable and I loved that series as a child but never owned any but sadly, my girls did not take to it.
