A lot of picture books come to mind but my first chapter book was a Nancy Drew mystery. I read so many of those.

I can't remember from when I was really small, but the first actual book I read was A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. I'll never forget him because he was and still is the only author I have ever come across who discourages his readers from reading his book from the authors note.

We read Summer of the Monkeys in class and I remembered loving it so much I had my kids watch the movie when they were to young to read the book. They loved it too.

The Nancy Drew series. I was about six when I started those. I know I've read other things before it, but I remember this one most vividly.
