The book that made her start reading

My daughter loved to listen to stories (Audible),
 but didn't like to read real paper books (except manga).
 Part of the problem is that kids in Luxembourg
 start reading in German, which is close to
 Luxembourgish, but still a foreign language. 
And listening is so much easier than reading
 (because they are used to watching German
 TV most of the time). 

And then she brought home the book they
 started reading together in school: 
Black Blade part one by Jennifer Estep. 
She LOVED it and asked me to buy part two
 and three because she wanted to know
 how the series ended. 

From that day on she hasn't stopped reading ...

... which made me a very happy mother.
