I would take her to your local library and let her choose whatever takes her fancy. Her school won't be expecting her to be able to read, and just loving stories is absolutely fine.
Try her on the Julia Donaldson books, Happy Families by Allan Ahlberg, Fairytale Hairdresser series, Hairy MacLary books, Dr Seuss etc.

Try 'The Little Cockroach'. It's a rhyming story, Julia Donaldson stylie. It's a travel adventure that teaches children about other cultures, travel, determination & friendship.
