Great Read-Alouds

03 Jun

As I made my way through the top 100 children’s books, I enjoyed discovering that many of these novels make great read-alouds.  As most should agree, it is critical to the imagination and growth of young children to have books read aloud to them.  Picture books do just fine for toddlers, but I have also found value in reading chapter books to children.  Below is a list of the books I chose from our list that I think would make great read-alouds.  If you click on the title of the book, it will lead you to my original post on the novel.
