Classical First grade Reading List

A Listmania! list by Lisa "Mrs Hannigan has 6 daughters" (Washington State)
The list author says: "These first grade classics are recommended for The Well Trained Mind, a Thomas Jefferson Education, Ambleside Online and Charlotte Mason First Grade Classical Education. This list of books is easily adapted for younger children, the books are above first grade reading level. In a classical education, kids aren't forced to do a lot of reading on their own, but well-written stories (Charlotte Mason calls them living books) are important."
