I Can Read! Books

The I Can Read! early reader series books are perfect for having at home for your beginning readers! Not only are the book organized into color-coded levels, but there are hundreds of titles with some of the most beloved characters in children’s literature! Here’s some Level 1 books that Baby Brother is enjoying:I Can Read BooksThey’re all so cute and Baby Brother loves them! So, I decided to make him his very own “I Can Read 10 Books” reading log to print out here at home.

Printable Reading Chart

The chart is a great visual for him to see that he is reading books! I love the addition of having him pick a “tricky word” from the book – any word that he thought was harder, he needed extra help with, etc. That word list should be a great vocabulary builder as we fill out the chart. And he loves coloring in the star ratings! Beginning Reading Log

For best results, I recommend printing on the highest quality/photo setting on a slightly heavier paper (like brochure paper or light card stock). Once printed, you can hang the chart somewhere that your kiddos will see. Every time they finish a book, you can have them fill out their chart! If you’d like, you could even make it a reward chart where they get a prize after completing their chart! Early Reader BooksBaby Brother was keen to read Paddington Sets Sail. I did have to help him through some of it. But once we were done, I had him fill out his chart. You can see we still need to work on some writing skills (since he couldn’t get the full title in there). But since it’s for fun here at home, I didn’t press the issue! 10 books reading chartIt’s an easy way to help focus on reading at home! So, pick out some I Can Read! book series and download the reading chart above. You can learn even more about the I Can Read! series by watching this YouTube video here!

  1. We inspire a love of reading from introducing reading at a young age. We spend a lot of time at our local library, read ourselves for enjoyment, and read with them.

  2. It would be impossible for me to name my favorite children’s book, but I have nurtured a love of reading by giving the children in our family books for every holiday. It’s never a surprise what they’ll be getting, just which book. 😉

  3. When my grandchildren visit we read together before bed time. Sometimes I read to them and sometimes the oldest reads
