As a former 1st grade teacher there are so many 1st grade books out there! Here are some great books for both parent and child:
1. My Brother Martin by Christin King Ferris
2. And to Think You Though We'd Never Be Friends by Mary Ann Hoberman
3. If a Bus Could Talk: The Story of Rosa Parks by Faith Ringgold
4. The Sissy Duckling by Harvey Fierstein
"Three Tales of My Father's Dragon" by Ruth Stiles Gannett is a great series for kids of this age range. It's the story of a resourceful young man named Elmer Elevator who runs away with an old alley cat, in order to rescue a baby dragon. Armed only with the random collection of things he managed to stuff into his pockets-- a magnifying glass, a brush, and a few sticks of chewing gum-- he must outsmart a progression of savage beasts who'd love to have him for lunch. The short chapters and simple vocabulary make this a perfect first chapter book.
