[RPG] Picking 1st-level spells for a Druid

character-creationdnd-5edruidspells

I wanted to pick Animal Friendship and Speak with Animals.

However, this character has +6 Animal Handling & +4 Nature, so I don't think I need animal handling spells. For this reason, I'm considering Charm Person and Thunderwave. Is this a good idea?

Which two first-level spells should I pick for my Druid?

You don't have to pick

Druids get access to all their spells and can swap out prepared spells after a long rest.

You almost certainly get more than 2 spells

The number they can prepare is equal to their Druid level plus their Wisdom modifier. So with a starting Wisdom modifier of +3, for example, you can prepare four -- not two -- Druid spells.
