I'm looking for thoughtful stories to read @ nighttime to my little love bug. Any suggestions? Any favorites?
Thank you :)
This is a great list of books for preschool children. It includes lots of classics!
We read a ton of stories each night. Recently we've been especially loving the collection of stories in The Story Tree with classic tales retold by Hugh Lupton. We've also been doing chapter books for a few months and that's been really great. The big hits for her were Mary Poppins by T.L. Travers, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Raold Dahl and right now we're reading Henry Huggins by Beverly Cleary.
We also love the Frances books as well as Frog and Toad.
Run to the library and check out Jim Trelease's The Read-Aloud Handbook. It has incredible suggestions for books!
We have been in love with Robert McCloskey books for some time now - Time of Wonder, One Morning in Maine, Lentil, Blueberries for Sal, Make Way for Ducklings. Also, Virginia Lee Burton's Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, The Little House are superb. I enjoy reading The Storm Book by Charlotte Zolotow - my son liked it better when he was three or so, though (he's four now).
