  1. Wow, so many choices! Which one would you read to two very young kids (4 and 7)? We read My Father’s Dragon and others not on the list, but I’m not sure where to go from there.

    1. For little readers, have you done Winnie-the-Pooh? Great language, fantastic gentle stories.

      The Borrowers would also work for little kids because of the magic of the small people. It does have some adventure and tension.

      Either of the Ramona books would work well. They are very funny and winning.

      Anyone else have some they would recommend?

  2. Wow! What a list! A couple of the ones you didn’t highlight are among my favorites and I’m surprised how many of the others I missed, having been a huge huge reader. I’m reading Charlotte’s Web to my four year old, but I’m not sure how attached to it she is. I’ve got to find something she’ll fall in love with. It’s hard for me as a book lover to see that my child might not be that into them…

    1. My sons were never that into Charlotte’s Web. I struggle with offering them books that I am so in love with that I am crushed when they don’t love them too. I just try to repeat to myself – For every book, a reader. Those are just not their books.

  3. OK, Tara. Get a copy of Frindle today and start reading. Do not pass GO, do not collect $200. (Great list! Thanks.)
