Easy-read Portuguese books.
Hello. I'd like to start reading something in Portuguese. My reading (And everything else, for that matter) are at a low skill. I'm a "newbie" to this, I guess.
Are there any books that can be recommended for someone on the first stepping-stone of learning Portuguese? I need something that's easy, but not too easy. (If that helps in any way at all.) Something that won't be too difficult, but not something that will bring excessive ease. Thank you.
It really depends what books you like. Comics are a great start. I read a lot of Turma de Monica when I first started learning Portuguese. They are for children, but adults love them too. They are an iconic Brazilian group of characters. Not so easy to get outside Brazil. I read a lot of books that I had also read in English, but started with children's books, as you can spend more time in a dictionary than the actual book if you start with adult books. My children have the Um Diário de Banana set (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) those have a comic format that is an easy introduction too.
Definitely, I would recommend Turma da Monica comic books. I still read them sometimes, they are really funny
Ah, yes, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The first English book I actually read back to front. (Well... I skipped bits.) I'll probably read one in Portuguese. Thank you!
