My son is five and a half and while we've read every night since he was born, it's always been smaller story books. He would fight me if I tried to read a chapter book because of the lack of pictures and the fact that they take too long. Story time was getting frustrating for me because I was tired of reading the same books over and over.
One night, I decided to read to him from a book that I was currently reading (A "grown up" book but not inappropriate) and he loved it! He eagerly awaited the next installment. Since then, we've been reading the Magic Tree House series which he enjoys but I am getting bored with.
So.. I am here for some suggestions! What does your younger boys like that also is pretty interesting for an adult to read?
