Our Read Aloud List

Okay, you asked for it, a list of all of the books we've read aloud together as a family over the past couple of years.

If you'd like to see descriptions and pricing, or if you would like to purchase any of these books, you can do so by going to my Amazon store.  I will receive a small stipend if you purchase anything, which helps me to keep the website up and running. 

Here's the list in the order that we have read them. I must say that, so far, we haven't been disappointed in any of these books. If there is a movie that has been made from the book, we watch that after we are done reading.

I hope that you've found one or two titles that may have peaked your interest.  Any of these titles would be good to read to kids of all ages.  I have taken books from various reading levels and read them to even the younger kids and they are just as engrossed in the story.  If they don't understand something they will just ask and then we can discuss it. 

I hope you'll continue, or consider starting, read aloud time in your home.

Check out these titles at my Amazon Store!
