What was the first book you read? at least the first book you read for pleasure. The book I consider as such is Tasseltip's lucky day, Tasseltip is a rabbit and he went from one adventure to another. I can still picture out the book in my mind along with the colorful drawings too bad I do not remember the author. But then, as a kid I never tried to make an effort to remember the authors. SO what was the first storybook you read?

Nothing personal, but I'm surprised at the ages you guys said you were when you read your first book. I first read Chicken Little when I was 3. I actually read it, not memorized. I know that in first grade I had read all of the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books in our school library, so they let me go to the 4-6th grade library on the other side of the building.

well, thats nice that you got interested in reading so early, but for me i don't remember anything about myself while i was three years old. I remember starting to read when i was 5 but it was more magazine articles and comics and in my first language cebuano, not tagalog.

The first book I ever read was given to me by my grandmother in West Virginia when I went to visit her as a little girl. I was are you there God it's me Margaret and it had to do with a young girl starting her menstrual cycle.

i've read that book too quite a long time ago.. together with the summer sisters.. i think both books are by judy blume! however, my fascination for reading started with sweet valley high and sweet dreams series during high school days.

The first book I read on my own was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and I still love it now and have read it to my daughter twice already and she is only 5. Tasseltip was a ladybird book. I'm not sure who wrote it but I know they are still available on ebay if you want to get a copy.

I still remember that I was a very shakey child and wanted to read fairy tales rather than "Mystery" stories.But one day Ma bought me The Boy Next Door byEnid Blyton,since then I devour Mystery/Detective stories.It's really pathetic that after reading, say almost more than thousanda of detective/mystery stories since then, I cant recollect the story.

My first book was Titled "The Rainbow Dragon". I don't remember the author. Like you I was never interested in those kind of details. The book itself as far as I can remember was a 'which-way' book. Depending on the page turn option you choose for your character it was like playing a game unlike any other I'd experience upto that point in life. I remember picking up the book while in grade 7 becasue of the colourful picture on the cover. After flipping through a few pages I asked my teacher if I could borrow it. He was delighted that I showed interest in something other than distracting others in the class room. I don't remember the details of the story but I enjoyed it so much that I've remembered the title up until now (post college student). And often refer it to my nephews and niece as a very good book to read.
