Looking for some books that your preschoolers can read themselves? These farm animal books will go great with your farm theme!
I love creating simple Color Me Readers to go along with our themed book lists. So far, I’ve shared three sets:
It’s spring, so farm animal books seemed perfect!
When my just-turned-Five saw the newest set of books, he wanted to color them right away.
I did want him to read them, but I knew they would be too easy for him. He’s doing really well on my free sight word books, so he could read these without any trouble.
I’m actually creating this series of books with my Three in mind. He doesn’t know any sight words yet, but he’s learning basic concepts of print. He was able to read the Level One book without a lot of difficulty, since he knows the letter “a.” “A cow… A horse… A pig…”
He very much wanted to point to each word as he read, which was awesome. This is the first time he’s shown an interest in doing that.
When he started the book, he asked, “Where do I start?” and then put his finger on the first word. Once he learned the pattern, though, his finger couldn’t keep up with the words. He quickly moved his finger to the last word when he realized he was done with the page. 🙂
You may find that your child starts to learn the sight words by reading the books several times. Or you may find that these books simply serve to give your preschooler confidence and build his concepts of prints: two very important things!
We hope you enjoy our newest set of Color Me Readers!
