Reading Lists

We love to read.  I probably read aloud to our kids a couple hours a day and they still beg me to read more.  There are so many wonderful books I'd recommend and so many I never read as a child; I think I'm making up for lost time.

Here are of some books we've read aloud.  It's not a completely exhaustive list, but what I've kept track of in the last couple years.  If it's a favorite book that the kids absolutely loved it will be marked with an asterisk (*).

Books are in alphabetical order by authors last name.
