How old was your child when you started reading chapter books out loud to them? I have tried to do so with my almost 5 year old and he won't have it. I have tried many different books but maybe not the right one yet. Any suggestions?
My son who is 4 loves the Magic Tree House series. We normally just read one or two chapters at a time. We also have C.D.'s of that series and he enjoys listening to them at night right before he goes to bed. What are some of your child's interests? I might be able to suggest a good chapter book that he would enjoy.

The first one explains about the magic tree house but after that it mainly concentrates on the story. The other ones will mention sometimes about how the Magic tree house was discovered. We read the first one and then afterwards I let my son pick out the ones that he wants to read about. Sometimes they are in order and sometimes he skips about 5 or 6 books in between.
