In which I list the books we will read this year

I have set a goal to read at least 18 good read alouds with the kids this year.  I have selected 16 of them already.  I think I will ask our local children's librarian for more suggestions for this age/stage We're looking forward to getting started on these!

  1.  Adventures of Little Bear by Else Minarik and Maurice Sendak
  2. Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
  3. Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne
  4. Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  5. The Secret Garden by Francis Hodgson Burnett  (Completed in February)
  6. Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
  7. From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
  8. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
  9. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume
  10. Ralph S. Mouse by Beverly Cleary
  11. James Herriot's Treasury of Inspirational Stories for Children James Herriot  (Completed in January)
  12. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh by Robert O'Brien
  13. The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall
  14. American Girl - Josefina and Samantha, specifically.
  15. The Borrowers by Mary Norton
  16. Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh 
I will come back and update this list with the last two books, just as soon as I choose them!  I'm totally open to suggestions, too.  What would you read to a kindergartener or first grader?

  1. Happy Little Family by Rebecca Caudill was one of my sister and I's favorite books. It was published in 1947 and is a sweet simple chapter book!
