For the past year Calvin has been really into read-aloud chapter books. I try to include Norah, but she is three. So she gets bored and a little attention-deprived, but lately we have been letting her pick a book to read to her between chapters of the big book. She has been really into Caps For Sale.
Some of my favorites we've read are:
Winnie the Pooh
House at Pooh Corner
the first three Harry Potters
and our current selection (a birthday present), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I tried to get The BFG but the only bookstore in Logan didn't have it and I didn't have time for the Internet Machine to send me a copy. I have loved Roald Dahl since I could read, but he is so good out loud too. I like Charlie much better reading it to my children than I liked it as a 10-year-old reading it to myself. (I preferred Matilda, The Witches, and the BFG.)
