The littles need a cozy days reading list, too. It could be miles long, so I'm breaking it up into a couple of lists, and even then I'm wishing I could have added about 15 more titles just to this one. I had to stop somewhere, though, so consider this your starter list.
It is so sweet to introduce your littles to all the worlds and adventures you experienced growing up, don't you think?
Little House in the Big Woods: we are trying this one out on our road trip to Texas this weekend. I imagine being peppered with questions as the "big woods" take shape in a little 4 year old mind.
Anne of Green Gables: one of the best and dearest.
Charlotte's Web: "you have been my friend," replied Charlotte. "that in itself is a tremendous thing."
Little Women: it's worth every 816 pages.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe: this is one that I imagine reading all together in a few years. wintry nights, pjs on, sipping cocoa, getting lost in that magical world of Narnia.
Winnie-the-Pooh: the most quotable bear in all the world.
Boxcar Children: this was our first go with a chapter book and AK was fascinated. it was neat to watch her put all the pieces together with the extra bits of imagination that must be used when the pages aren't filled with pictures.
Mr. Popper's Penguins: it's just a fun one.
Little Bear: we've been reading these to Little for a long time and she now likes to pick them up and read them to herself. observing that is one of the sweetest sights you'll ever see.
More to come, my friends. After all, you can never have too many books.
