Anyone out there that have smaller hands and can’t really spread your fingers out much, how do you deal with this? Does it just get easier with practice?
I have fairly small hands and I do just fine. Sometimes I have to rework the position of the notes a little bit(moving them to another string and stuff like that) but it's possible

It gets easier with practice, I used to have the same problem too. Even when you can't really reach them, you will find yourself changing your hand and arm position in order to make it possible. :) Some guitar models are also more comfortable for some people, but that's not really a rule

Was wondering if anyone had an idea of any books to buy that explain how to read music on the staff and what note means what string to play on. I can read the CB notes well but have no information on what string to start on. Please and Thank you

what is your warm up routine
I first stretch my hands, then do some rhythm exercises with the strumming hand to get it loose and get myself into the "groove", then finger independence exercises with my freeing hand, sync exercise to get both hands "on the same page" and finally lesson 6: say every note on the fretboard outloud to slowly memorize them over time. All together takes about 15-20 mins. I was planning to do a video to share my exercises with other people, let me know if it interests you. :)
