High Interest, Low Level Book Suggestions

I am a third grade teacher, but am tutoring a little guy who just finished first grade. He is reading at a mid-first grade level and has already declared that he "hates reading."

I am not very familiar with popular books at this reading level- any suggestions for high interest books for a reluctant reader? He is very interested in the outdoors and sports.

Thanks first grade experts!

I like the Henry and Mudge books by Cynthia Rylant. But I've read that little boys prefer nonfiction. Try to find some low level books on a subject he is interested in.
You might check out comics also. Calvin and Hobbs is a great favorite of little boys

My boys always love the nonfiction books (even those that don't like reading and schoolwork). Snakes, penguins, weather - they love it all. Also, they really enjoy magazines like Ranger Rick. Good luck!

This fantastic series got one of my most reluctant readers (a boy) into books. There's very little text on each page and they are FUNNY. My class fought over them for half the year . Fly Guy is good, too, but the reading level is above where you student is right now.

Biscuit books

There are several easy reader Biscuit books. I had a reluctant reader this year in first grade. He ended the year at mid first grade and was able to read all the Biscuit books. He loved them and reread them to his family. (Biscuit is a dog) It might be a good start for your student.
