Read Alouds for 7 Year Olds
Here's the list of books I plan on reading to Snowy this year.
Little Pear by Eleanor Frances Lattimore
The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander
Half Magic by Edward Eager
The Borrowers by Mary Norton
Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder
The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks
Homer Price by Robert McCloskey
The Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame
Mr William Shakespeare's Plays by Marcia Williams
21 Balloons by William Pene du Bois
The Children of Green Knowe by Lucy M Boston
Some of these books I've read aloud before, when Snowy was little and I'm looking forward to revisiting those, but some of them are new to us both. I'm hoping something fabulous and just-published will come along this year to amuse and entertain as well. This should be a Charlotte's Web year; Snowy refuses to hear of it. His sisters have warned him in advance: Wilbur dies.
If you have a great book lined up to read aloud this year to your under 10's, please share!
