I decided to check out the Top 100 Free Children's Books on Kindle list -- a spot I rarely visit -- and was pleasantly surprised with the options. Below are the titles I picked up for myself and family. We haven't read any of them YET...
Because I'm extremely interested in fairytale re-tellings or re-worked versions, I got these books:
These 2 looked cool to me and possibly for my kids:
For my youngest, and possibly for the eldest to attempt to read:
Hoping for a few laughs with these stories. Note that the Patterson one is ONLY THE FIRST 20 CHAPTERS.
Let me know if you pick one or more of these up. I will, hopefully, be able to post reviews in the near future.
Please also note that, while these books are Free and in the Top 100 Free at the moment I write this, that could change at any moment. I offer NO PRICE GUARANTEE.

May turned out to be a good month for reading for my kids too. We went through quite a few books. Maybe we're getting ready for summer reading...
Below are the books my eldest read to me.
Reminder that we BORROW the majority of our books from the library. I HIGHLY recommend you visit your local library to access these books for less because the cost of buying them all adds up fast.

Here's a list of my eldest's favorite books THAT SHE COULD READ by the end of Kindergarten.
Note: she still needed help with some of the words, but she could recognize and read the majority of them. We read these books aloud.
Little Critter and the Level 1 series of Step Into Reading books seemed to be winners. When I'm looking for books for her to read, I try to keep them limited targeted at 1 to 2 shorter sentences on a page.
The Tooth Fairy's Night and A Green, Green Garden are at the harder end of her reading level. There's less repetition of the same words. Granted, she did enjoy Green, Green Garden because of the color words.
The collection of books above can be hard to come by. I HIGHLY recommend them. EG first came home with them from her teacher's library. We got our copies from a homeschooling friend with kids of similar ages. I was shocked she parted with them. They are funny and cute, high on the repetition side.
I hope this list helps you teach your little learner to read. Remember to keep a high volume of repeating words. The more practice they get recognizing the same words, the faster they'll memorize them and be ready to move on to new words.

As always, please check for these books at your local library, used-book sales, and other places that sell books. Some of these I purchased at Costco as part of box sets.
