I need a good reading primer... a reading book like you'd have in school. One you'd use if you were first starting to decode words...something you'd see at the K or first grade level.

It has to have people in it. DD does not like stories about animals.
I'm thinking of something like Dick and Jane, but dd does NOT like the pictures of that.

I can't even think of what to google.

Any suggestions?

Also, anyone do The Reading Lesson... are all the stories in there about people, or not?

No, they are not.

My dad's first grade reading primer is called Day In and Day Out. He still has it, and I used to love to reading it when I was little. I's all about kids.

Ps. If you google "Alice and Jerry basic readers" you will get lots of hits.

OMG!!
No freaking way. My elementary school is actually named after the author. I did not know that. I'm guess I probably used these in first grade.
LOL!!!

You could also check out the Ginn Basic Reader Series, one of which is The Little White House. (This was the book my first grade class used.) Here is a sample listing from Ebay that includes pictures. The illustrations are similar to the Dick and Jane ones, so they may not do.

We have A Beka's book - Fun With Pets. It has pets and the kids who own them. Nicely illustrated - basic instructions. My DD really developed fluency with this book.

I looked and couldn't find pictures of what this book looks like online, so I added a couple to my flickr album so you'll get an idea. I really like it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/43774869@N00/

We use the Reading Lesson! I LOOOVE it! I used it to teach my oldest ds to read and am currently using it for my next child. It is absolutely wonderful and it really works well. The first two lessons are downloadable at their website www.readinglesson.com

Not ALL of the stories are about people. Some are about animals. Some are about objects. There is a variety. Best advice I can give is check out the sample lessons online and go from there.

I am from the UK- We don't have Dick and Jane, we DO have Peter and Jane (are they the same??)

Over here we use the Oxford Reading Tree readers- but they are cartoon type drawings. I guess this doesn't help as I am in the UK, but you can see the different styles.
