This is a very nice addition to my daughters, beginning books. She really enjoys this reader. I like progression of this for reading advancement, a bit challenging, but at the same time easy, it makes sense! The stories are lovely, not like some out there, and the pictures are soft and very colorful.


My 5 year old loves this book

My son will read us one of the stories before bed, before I read bedtime books. It’s helped increase his confidence with reading, and it makes this mama happy. The stories are cute.


Excellent for beginners

My 5 year old boy is enjoying reading this book. It is right at his level and can read the stories confidently. The illustrations are beautiful and it has plenty of stories. I recommend all the My First Nature readers for kids learning to read.


Great collection of beginner readers!

We loves this collection of books for early readers. The illustrations are beautiful, there is a good variety of site words, cvc words, and easy to decode words. This is perfect for my 6 year old who is beginning to read independently. Id definitely say it’s meant for K-1 grade, and to help boost their reading confidence. Love the nature aspect too.

I’m glad I got the second set too!


So cute and love the hard bound

We received this in the mail last week and my son was wanting to read something for the very first time (I’ve been doing a summer reading thing with him and he will be in kindergarten this fall). The quality of the book, the beautiful illustrations, and the right level of words for a brand new reader make this book a real winner. I genuinely enjoyed my son reading this book to me and I plan to pick up the other editions of the nature readers soon.

*request for more hard cover books please! I would pay a bit more to have a hard cover of a picture book.

The Good and the Beautiful My First Readers are designed to give the child extra independent reading practice at exactly the level the child is on, which boosts confidence and makes reading less overwhelming and a more enjoyable and positive experience. 

These wonderful books to read for beginners are not integrated with this course, but all the My First Readers follow the exact scope and sequence of the Reading Booster A Cards. For example, Story #11 in the My First Nature Reader covers ending consonant blends and avoids any concepts the child has not learned yet.
