Im yet to have a child in school but i dont agree with homework either and certainly not if its stressing the child out. Learning should be enjoyable for them.
Once dd is in school if i think she is getting too much or she doesn't want to do it i will be informing her teacher. They shouldnt be given any homework in primary school imo, esp the first few years!

You read to him, pointing to the words as you do so he can follow along. Talk about the pictures, help him try and figure out the story from looking at the pictures :-)
He won't get penalised for not doing the readers so don't stress too much on that, what will happen though is that he'll struggle in class if his reading and subsequently his writing aren't up to where they should be.
Take the pressure off a bit, it's only the first week :-)

Re: Homework battles
Today we had a playdate over. Playdate left about 15mins ago so we did some reading. There was about 3mins of whinging and a few tears but he read the books several times. I said he only had to read 1 but he read 2 of the 3 today. He was very proud of himself for reading them.
I tried to get him to look at not just the pictures but also the words. He pointed to the words and read from the pictures too.
Today was much much better than yesterday.
