NotAVampireLvr Posted February 12, 2012 Share Posted February 12, 2012 Working off Medieval Mom's book list (great list BTW!)... We're seriously behind on our reading - public school really took a toll and we haven't done anything other than picture book and fluff fiction all year. By story time my 7 y.o. was pretty wiped and didn't have the attention span for a lot of reads except on the weekends. Now that we are pulling from PS next week I want to incorporate more from the list... From the first grade list we've already done the following: Aesop for Children Read Aloud Rhymes Garden of Verses Real Mother Goose Complete Tales of Beatrix Potter Charlotte's Web Velveteen Rabbit Winnie The Pooh All the Burgess West Wind books (but not the singles) Saint George and the Dragon Obviously the list is extensive and we'll never get to it all, but what are some must-reads for a 7 y.o. boy? He wants to read Farmer Boy next. I also want to get in some Great Illustrated Classics, a some history reading and get started on a series that ISN'T Droon or Magic Treehouse. We have a ton of reading-level books, and our picture book collection is overflowing so I'm really looking for read-aloud recommendations from this list mostly.
