The results of the study showed that the obstacles faced when reading at the beginning were the absence of books as learning materials for reading and parents who did not teach their children to read. The causes of not being able to read at first were parents not teaching them to read, vomiting at the age of 8 months, and malnutrition during the pregnancy process. Special time is needed to teach children to start reading. To recognize letters takes a long time. And teachers should combine learning with the use of media, one of which is picture card media. The consequence of not being able to read at the beginning is low learning grades and being teased by friends.
