Here are some excellent books that we have explored last year. Of course, good books are timeless, so the year doesn’t really matter. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!!
Here are some of our favorite great chapter books. We have enjoyed these right after my kids moved past picture books, but weren’t ready yet for bigger books, such as Harry Potter, and many others. These are funny, light, and are a great next step from picture books.
I love to read, and used to read all the time, sometimes several books at the same time. Last year I woke up one morning and, with horror, realized that I haven’t read one book worth mentioning in the entire year. Sure, I read a few: textbooks, child development books, articles, technical books, even a sappy romance novel or two, but nothing that I truly enjoyed or remembered. I turned to the well-read people of facebook. I asked my friends list on facebook for book recommendations. It turned out into a great discussion about books, and this is a list I got from it. Some of the books I have read, and some I am going to read. I am planning on reading as many as I can on this list. Please enjoy this wonderful list of great books!
Here is our list of great books for pre-teens and teens. Seeing as we just entered this point in our lives, check back for updates as we read more and more books! All the books here were read by my older son, who is 13 now, and some of them I read as well. We enjoyed all of these.
I love picture books! Love them! I love reading to my kids and even though some days they seem too old for it I do it anyway. There are so many books for this age. When they were younger my boys don’t only enjoy being read to, they loved any book that they can explore. Books that had textures, made sounds and moved when the pages opened were a big hit. There are so many wonderful books like that, too many to list here, so here is just a few. The first ten books or so are great for babies, with bigger books in the rest of the list. I hope you enjoy these 50 great picture books as much as we did!
