My mom, Martha reading to her granddaughter, Darcy
Reading together with children is something I cherish. In this section, along with reviewing new children's books, I would love to get a discussion going--what books do your children particularly enjoy and why? I was parenting young children in the mid-80's and early 90's, and then teaching preschool until 2007--so I know great ones from that era--Owl Moon, Grandfather Twilight, and my preschooler's favorites: the "No, David!" series.
What are your favorites?
I look forward to hearing about your suggestions--please feel free to post in the comments section.
If you haven't used it already I want to let you know about "The Read-Aloud Handbook," by Jim Trelease. http://www.trelease-on-reading.com/ It is filled with ideas and is now in it's 6th printing. Here's another resource from my local library system: http://www.kcls.org/parents/kidsandreading/readytoread/index.cfm
