Age 9 Books

These books are not super educational. I fact they are quite silly. But they are interesting and fun for a 3rd grader to read. It is hard to keep my son reading and interested. And I found these books keep him entertained while he practices his reading.

Superhero books

The Adventures of Captain Underpants

Captain Awesome

Big Nate


Age 4 Books

These books are so good at keeping your child’s attention! Jump, Frog, Jump is funny and easy to read. It’s also a great book to practice speech. Let your child finish the sentences. It’s so cute.

The Usborne books (see inside books) have flaps to lift and look inside things. Very fascinating. And a great way to get your child talking and asking questions.

The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear

Age 1.5 Books

These books are all about keeping your child interested and listening. At almost 2 years old they can’t read but they can remember what the story is about and they can start expanding their vocabulary.

Both my boys have a speech delay and I have used all these books to expand their vocabulary. My little girl is already speaking in 2-word phrases and these books are just giving her more to say.
