Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

We started August 1st.  My "freshly" 6 year old read his first book today.  He is one of those hyper, gotta be active while I am learning kind of kids so I thought it would take longer....but he's doing it.  He says he wants to wait until he's grown up a little more before we tell daddy though.  I think he's a bit of a perfectionist, too.

This is the set of Phonics Books that we are on...Animal Antics  written by Nora Gaydos and Illustrated by BB Sams.

I have watched many times when my 6yo schools my 4yo.  Lately it is in math......like Hey Ben, do you know what 9+4 is?  Too cool to see.

If you don't mind me asking.....what type of book was it?  I am working on my 6yo to start trying to read by himself a little but he gets frustrated if there are any words on the page that he doesn't know or can't figure out.  Wondering what some good books to start him off on might be.

Thank you.  I will look into this since so far the readers that I have seen at the library don't seem to be where he is at yet.
