What was the first book you ever read when you were little?

Mine was "The Foot Book" by Dr. Seuss. My mom read it to me every night and it was how I learned to read. I memorized it, and my mom showed me what the letters meant and how to use them in new words.

  • I believe it was Madeline. I didn't read until I was 7 and in 2nd grade and my parents recorded me reading that book which is what makes me think it was my first. I have no idea what happened to the recording though.

  • I have no idea what the first book EVER was because I've been reading most of my life, but I remember reading Charlotte's Web the summer before I started head start.
