Current Read-Alouds


These are a few of the books we enjoyed this week.

"A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog"
Mercer Mayer

"Make Way for Ducklings"
Robert McCloskey

"Millions of Cats"
Wanda Gag

"Freight Train"
Donald Crews

"A Million Fish... More or Less"
Patricia C. McKissack

All of the books above can be found in "The 20th Century Children's Book Treasury"

"The Prince and the Pauper"
Disney Retelling

One or two pages from this per day...

"The Real Mother Goose"
Blanche Fisher Wright (Illustrator)

I almost always initiate a mini-narration from him when we're finished so that I know he understood the story and we discuss the story during and after reading it. Of course, we read more than these, but many have been listed before, will be blogged about at a later date or weren't worth a report.

To see what others are reading to their children (and what some children are reading to their parents), please visit the links below:


  1. I need to get the Daniel Crews book to read with my toddler. He loves trains! Thanks for linking up with RAT. You've been missed!

  2. We enjoyed Make Way for Ducklings. We are also reading through The Real Mother Goose, and my boys enjoy it.

  3. What a wonderful selection of books!

  4. I love that you are reading and enjoying the classics with your children! :)
