    My daughter is using the Treasures progrm in K. Personally, I think it's a little slow going, so I have been supplementing at home with sight words and Jolly Phonics program. I would like to start her reading actual books (she just brings a booklet to read from Treasures program about once a week). Can anyone recommend a set I could order (not Bob's books) for the earliest readers? I don't want to frustrate her. I like the Oxford Reading Tree (British) read at home stuff, but can't find them on this side of the pond.

    Thanks for your help!

    Have you tried taking her in to a Barnes and Nobles or another local book store? There are many level 1 books that would be great for her.

    If she is reading, then I agree with going to a bookstore or library. Let her browse through, feel the books, take her time in choosing a book that interests her....how exciting! Don't get stuck in a series or program.

    That said, check Lakeshore Learning. They have some cute sight word books that my class loves.

    For home, you might want to start her out at a level below what she brings home. By the time she brings it home, she has been guided through that book. That's not necessarily reflective of her independent reading level.

    I can't find anything at library or B&N that is easy enough for her, that's why I figured I would order a set. I will check out Lakeshore Learning
