PeacefulChaos Posted September 1, 2012 Share Posted September 1, 2012 Similar to my movie thread. :) I'm curious as to what books are on your 'must read' list with your kids. Obviously the kids themselves will go through a lot of books and read them, but there are some that are just so much fun to read with them, kwim? So far we've read: Mr. Popper's Penguins, Peter Pan, Abel's Island, and all of Narnia (well - almost. We have a week left in The Last Battle). We may have read another one or two last school year that I don't remember. This year on our list we have Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, The Borrowers, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Canterbury Tales, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, The Wind in the Willows, Shakespeare, and Treasure Island. Others I own are James & The Giant Peach, Charlotte's Web, The Hobbit, The LOTR books, Marguerite Henry's books, Sarah, Plain and Tall, A Christmas Carol, The Jungle Book, Island of the Blue Dolphins, Number the Stars, So Young to Die, Caddie Woodlawn, Sounder, Sadako, Shiloh, Old Yeller, Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry, The Wizard of Oz, The Incredible Journey, Harry Potter 1-7... as you can see, we have a lot. But not all of them are necessary for reading aloud, I'm sure. So, what are some great ones? :bigear: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
