Abstract

This article will describe the analysis of textbooks used by teachers to early reading learning for elementary school students in grade 1. The data is obtained from interviews and observations in 3 Islamic elementary schools in Surakarta City, Indonesia. The teacher was teaching a beginning reading with Anak Islam Suka Membaca. On this ground, the book content was analyzed by content analysis methods. Book analysis is seen based on content, vocabulary, and grammar, exercises and activities, the attractiveness of the text and physical make-up. Findings indicate that the new vocabulary words presented in a variety of ways but some words are not meant so students are unable to know their meaning, students taught top-down techniques for learning new vocabulary words, the textbook has more activities book and nothing exercises, the cover of the book is not appealing, the visual imagery is not required aesthetic quality. The conclusion of the textbook is not enough making students enjoy reading.
