Time for another installment of my favorite books! Today I’m focusing on first grade. These were books that I enjoyed reading to myself as well as having read to me at bedtime. All are suitable choices for home and classroom libraries, as are any others by these authors.
All listed are still in print, although a few of my favorites are not. The Story of Babar by Jean De Brunhoff was listed as “not available,” so I didn’t link it, but it will hopefully be back in print soon. More Riddles by Bennett Cerf …With more Pictures by Roy McKie has unfortunately gone by the wayside. (What do you call four ducks in a box? A box of quackers!)
Other books I enjoyed that are out of print, but are possibly still available at libraries: Anatole Over Paris by Eve Titus, The Crybaby Calf, by Helen and Alf Evers, Herman the Brave Pig, by Miriam E. Mason, Fierce John, by Edward Fenton, and I Can’t, Said the Ant, by Polly Cameron.
