The jury is in. For I Love to Read month, I polled many moms to get their top picks of children’s books. My six-year-old son loves the Magic Treehouse books, as well as anything to do with Star Wars, insects, reptiles, or naughty boys. Experts say it’s especially important to tap into whatever your child is passionate about?from fairies to pirates?to make learning to read fun. And while that may be true, it’s also essential that your child develop an ear for a good story. These books definitely fit both bills and are especially good for the five-year-old to seven-year-old set:
For girls, we're digging Fancy Nancy. My daughter got her first exposure to the Magic Treehouse series as a 4 year old in preschool. We're also loving the Cam Jansen series.
My 8 year old loves loves loves The Magic Tree House series ....
I've found myself reading some of the books I loved as a kid. And I still love them.
my daughter loves 'Where the Wild Things Are' she reads it all the time.
this is great, where the wild things are is one of my all time favorite books.
The Junior Critter's Series is my favorite. Although I love Little Critter's, too, it is for smaller children.
My six-year-old daughter LOVES the Little House On the Prairie series. She reads at a 5th/6th grade level, so we have an issue of finding books that are at her reading ability without the subject matter being too mature for her. We're thinking of starting the Anne of Green Gables series this summer.
