We prefer to do their storytime separately, but it's not always possible. Ds seems to feel cheated if we do a short picture book of Dd's, and Dd obviously isn't ready to hear most of his stories. We tried the Wind in the Willows and she was bored too easily and couldn't sit through more than a couple of pages.

Any ideas?

My children, 4 boys ages 8, 7, 5, and 4, and two girls ages 2 1/2 and newborn, enjoy the Raggedy Ann and Andy stories. You can easily get them from the library. They are so fun to read. I even love them! The first Raggedy book my husband and I read to them was Raggedy Ann in Cookie Land. It was fun and we could read a chapter a night. If your local library doesn't have it, Amazon.com might HERE: http://www.amazon.com/Raggedy-Ann-Cookie-Land-Classic/dp/0689850964
