Treating ourselves to an Audiobook of The Secret Garden which my barely 4yo is LOVING and asking for more!
Dd and I really disliked the Beatrix Potter series when she was little, but we kept it on the shelf. Then, for some reason at about 6yo, she decided that she really liked it and we read through the collection several times *shrug* maybe it will be more enjoyable when your lo is a little older.
We are also reading the Little House series this year. Last year we did the first three Harry Potter books aloud, but after that the content gets a little more scary and plus I just got kinda burnt out on reading them out loud.
Right now we are bouncing around between the Reader's Digest _World's Greatest Fairy Tales_ Collection (fabulous, btw!), Stories of King Arthur, and On the Banks of Plum Creek. Also lots of poetry, and dd keeps asking for Grammar Land
funny, she goes on and on about how much she loves Grammar Land
I don't really plan our RAs out, but did purchase several of the ____(Iliad, Odyssey, etc.) for Boys and Girls series, some Robin Hood tales, a couple of living history books, and lately I've been thinking about the Burgess Bird or other books because we did start it, dd loved the characters, and then we petered out on it, but she has periodically brought it up since then.
Love this thread! Great ideas here, keep 'em coming!
