Great books for a second-grade reader who is a little behind
February 20, 2014 4:47 PM Subscribe
(Asking for a friend) My second grader is struggling to read at grade level, and I want to encourage him to associate reading with pleasure instead of frustration by giving him some books he'll love and that will be appropriately challenging but not vexing.

My second-grader is reading at a first grade level and is having trouble solidifying the skills that second-grade reading requires. I've got someone to help out with schoolwork, but I want him to become a lifelong reader despite his struggles. I would really appreciate suggestions for books that are at an advanced first-grade level, and which will encourage him to learn and offer an enjoyable reading experience. Thank you!
