children's books are so important. as a teacher, i enjoy helping to create avid readers. these books get young ones do the hard work of learning to read. first or second grade students choose these, although they are not phonics readers.
here's my top 5:
5. girls like them.
4. rhyming words build reading skills.
3. fly guy plays football.
2. there are lots of them, so once hooked, children keep having fun (practicing their reading),
1. boys like them.
