What's the first book you remember reading?

I'm not sure if it was a vocabulary book or an Archie comic book. :B

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch.

A depressing book, if you think about it, but nevertheless, I grew up with it. My mom actually would sing me the little song almost every night. (I was reading before I even finished pre-school, a bit of a brainiac before I even knew what a brainiac was, so I was still pretty young.)

I wish I could remember the title but I can't... The first book I ever read on my own as a child without help was about a dragon who was friends with a unicorn but didn't have wings because he wasn't brave (and went on a journey to get his wings). Was a nice story for a child to read :)

Spot the Dog. I think i read it when I was in preschool/kindergarten and it was basically like "Spot is a dog." "Spot can count." "1, 2, 3, 4, 5."
I was so amused though, despite how simple it was! :la:

A book about about a fire cat. It was a cat that was basically a dalmation dog and rode around with fire fighters....

The Berenstein Bears series. I forget which one exactly--I think it was the Stranger Danger one--but it was the first book series I got into that wasn't a readable coloring book. :XD:

The Cat in the Hat Came Back. I was eight years old, and had just learned how to read. However, I devoured all of the fairytales and the childrens' encyclopedias in the house that same year.

First legitimate book? Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning. In.... Second or Third grade.

Before that, some amazing children's book, because all the old children's books I have seem to be amazing. <3 Probably The Very Hungry Caterpillar-- something along those lines.

I remember a similar book, only it was an old lady in mine. It was called "But No Elephants".

In the end, the elephant helped.

The first book I read on my own was a Power Puff Girl chapter book. It was 58 pages with size 16 font and when the page had a picture it would take up half the page, but I was so proud of myself.

It did! :nod: I love it, too, because it's more of an "adult" book in my opinion. I don't think little kids always get the message.

I remember reading The Jungle Book, when my sister came up and asked "What are you doing? you don't know how to read."
Which confused me, because I thought I was reading. But she was right in that I didn't understand what I was reading. I don't know what I first read with comprehension.

I read this book called Leo the Late Bloomer when I was in first grade. I'm sure there are books I've read before that, but that's the one that stood out most, probably because I never returned it to the school library and got in trouble. ><
