She is about to be 5 in October.
Should she already know how to read?
When should I start her trying to read on her own or working on books together?
Oh, and BTW... she has just started Pre-K. Late birthday.

I think most kids in pre-K will still be working on pre-reading skills, but if she seems ready to move beyond that then go for it. Work on the sounds that the letters make. When she has those mastered you can move to the next step of sounding out simple words and recognizing sight words. Keep reading to her, and when you feel she is ready to attempt it with your help you can read together. I think it is the norm now for kids to be reading a little by the time they finish kindergarten.
