Hi friends! I'm sure you've seen on Pinterest pins about the best read aloud chapter books. I've pinned a few myself to get ideas of great chapter books for my kids to read. I thought I'd share with you today a few of my favorite easy chapter books that I've read aloud to my kids.
Pippi Longstocking -- Pippi is funny and crazy. My kids love this book because the author is Swedish. My husband served a church mission in Sweden for two years and got to visit the author's house.
My Father's Dragon (not in my picture) - I hadn't read this book before I read it to my boys. They loved it. It was short and really cute. I really appreciated the short chapters for those nights when the boys want to read "one more chapter."
The Chocolate Touch - This books makes me want to eat fruits and vegetables. I think my seven year old son felt that way at the end of the book too.
The Boxcar Children #1 - I've read this book outloud to my kids several times. They've loved it each time. It's fun to imagine living in a boxcar (in a really safe world where kids can live on their own).
Mr. Popper's Penguins - After the kids and I read this book, we watched the movie with Jim Carrey. It didn't follow the book very closely, but it's still fun. How crazy would it be to have penguins for pets?
Stuart Little - Fun book imaging what it would be like to have a mouse for a brother.
Mrs. Piggle Wiggle - I love all the Mrs. Piggle Wiggle books. She's fascinating -- lives in an upside down house and has amazing cures for everything.
Charlotte's Web - a classic. My kids like to watch the movie after we read this book.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - I like this first Harry Potter book the best, since it is the first one. It's not super scary and fun to introduce the kids into the world of Muggles and Wizards.
That's just a few of my favorite chapter books that I like to read aloud to my kids. What are your favorites? I'm always looking for good book suggestions.
