I didn't have any, but my 1st-grade classroom did. I could read very well by 1st grade, but I really liked the illustrations.

I learned to read early because my mom read to me every day, and she always ran her finger under the words as she read. Probly one of the reasons I followed along so well was because her fingernail polish was so pretty.

Also, my grampa let me sit on his lap while he read the newspaper every morning and he'd point at words he was sure I didn't know, sound them out for me, and then tell me what they meant.
