My First Book written by Jane Belk Moncure and illustrated by Colin King is a hardcover book with basic high frequency words on each page.
What I disliked:
It is too simple. One word on each page, maybe a a kindergartener would feel smart “reading it.” Mine didn’t even want to try.
What I liked:
The simplicity? Is that contradictory to love and hate the same thing? Because I do in this instance… The bright colors caught my eye.
Where to find it:
Thriftbooks.com sells this book for under $4, probably fair for a hardcover book.
