aggieamy Posted August 21, 2012 Share Posted August 21, 2012 DD and I love doing read alouds but have fallen out of the habit. We're still reading together a lot but mostly picture books and I really want to get back to doing a longish read aloud. Something wonderful where she'll be begging me to read until I'm hoarse and I'll go along with it because I can't wait to see how the book ends myself. We try to go through the Sonlight read alouds every year but none of the third grade books look interesting to me. Maybe there's a gem there that I've overlooked? Maybe you are reading something fantastic and think I should go to the library right now and pick it up and stop DD from playing and start reading to her immediately? Give me those suggestions! Books we've done in the past and loved are: The Boxcar Children James Herriot's Treasury For Children Wonderful Wizard of Oz Gooney Bird Greene Homer Price Henry Huggins Mrs. Piggle Wiggle Understood Betsy (wow. An all time favorite for both of us!) The Wheel on the School (Ditto. Amazing.) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
