    Elephant and Piggy, Frog and Toad, Mouse Stories. If he can do those, he might be ready for early chapter books...try the Magic Tree House series.

    My (relatively mainstreamish) favourites are Henry and Mudge, Mr. Putter and Tabby, and Little Bear.

    IMNSHO, it's better to wait on Magic Treehouse until they can read silently.

    Thread revival update:

    He is completely obsessed with non-fiction. I'm sure he's going to ask me for a set of encyclopedias one day. So every week I pick up a few level 1 readers and strew them about. Won't bite. So yesterday I strong armed him into reading a Puppy Mudge book and Elephant and Piggie - the one about taking a nap.

    He Loved them. He laughed right out loud at E&P. Ran around calling me a turnip head for the rest of the night. Loved Puppy Mudge, too. I only had to help him with a few word endings. I know he was stoked about being able to read a real book by himself.

    For Christmas, so funny, he wrote Santa that he wants books. So I picked up maybe 7 or 8 Seuss from different thrift stores and ordered one about space from Amazon. Also got him some of the Nat Geo Big Books because that is his absolute favorite. I told DS we must be doing something right if the kid is asking for books. Though, I'm not sure it's any of my doing actually.

    Anyway, thanks for all the awesome suggestions. We are still working our way through them!

    You could try Miss Rhonda's readers. I think of them as a step up from BOB, in terms of story and illustrations.

    We love the Nora Gaydos readers here and Primary Phonics has other good starter books.

    Lol I remember feeling that way. Not quite as bad now!

    ETA rereading the Dec update. Hilarious about the non fiction. This morning he walked into the bedroom with a kids dictionary. I had to pry it out of his hands so I could show him pictures on Facebook. You. Will. Be. Normalllll. Losing battle.

    LOL!

    Just had this conversation.
    DD: "Momma, can I bring the calculator in the car today?"
    Me: "Do you want to?"
    DD: "Yes!!!" Said like, "duh!"
    Btw, we don't do math in the car so it's not like she's trying to cheat on her math or anything.

    Haha probably doing math problems. Nerdy old kids. Everytime I get a real calculator in my hands I still spell "hello" and "boobs" upside down.
