First Grade Reading List

We have been doing school work for first grade for 22 days.

One of our favorite parts of school is reading.  I love reading.  O loves to be read to.  It is a perfect way to finish our days.

Before our year started I tried to compile a list of books (both chapter and picture) that I wanted to read with O.  I had various reasons for all the books.  

Here are a few of my reasons:
Some of them we have already read, but I wanted to read again and do some type of lesson with.  
Some of the picture books, I want O to start reading to me
Some were outside our normal genre of books we read
Some won awards
Some are classics

Of the 56 books on my list, we have read 9 (they are in bold).  (This isn't all we have read, just the ones that are on my list).
