Review: My Very First Reading Library

This is an outstanding collection of first readers by Usborne. You get 50 engaging books for your little aspiring reader. They gradually increase in difficulty and the back of each book has notes for the parent/teacher to guide them in teaching how to read. What I love best about these books is that they have puzzles after you finish the story. It really makes for a diligent young reader.


The books start out with you reading with your child. I enjoy this for 2 reasons; they don’t get burnt out trying to read a whole book by themselves and it’s a amazing bonding opportunity. Then they move onto reading alone with assistance from you. Eventually your little one reads on their own with little to no help. I also like that they are small so it’s easy to take them on the go. 


I highly recommend this set of reader for anyone who has a young kiddo starting to read or to help a child who is struggling with reading. Usborne has a bunch of other adorable books for all ages. The books in this collection are not very long so if you are short on time these are great way to squeeze in reading. No better way to start or end your day then cuddling up with your kids having story time.

  1. How fun! I could have used these a couple years ago.

  2. I love Usborne's approach with these early readers of including a line for the parent to read and then a line for the emerging reader. I found this kind of tag team reading was highly motivational for my kids.

  3. What a great way to give a child the confidence to become a good reader! This is a fantastic idea.

Getting Started & Preschool Schedule

I noticed a lot of people on Facebook where asking about how to get started with homeschooling and what people do for their toddlers. In Texas, it’s very simple. You just send a letter or email to your child’s school letting them know you are withdrawing your child with the intent of homeschooling. Then begin homeschooling. Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.
