Need suggestions for books to read to 6yo DD

I'm looking for suggestions on books that i can read to my 6yr old DD. I'm mostly looking for something that I can read a couple of chapters every night, yet it has to be exciting enough to make her want to find out what happens the next night. Someone mentioned Pinnochio, any other suggestions? We read smaller books at night, but it's always the types of books that are over in 5-10 minutes when I read them. We're looking for books that we can carry from night-to-night.
Thanks in advance!

  • Sorry hit enter before I was finished. Disney has books where they are like 70 pages and they are like Lion King, 101 Dalmatians etc. you can read a few pages a night because those books go into full detain like the movies.

  • Read her the Harry Potter books. My daughter is 5 1/2 and loves them. We're almost done with the 2nd one.
    There are a couple of chapter Eloise books. Those are pretty good too.
    Little Women is good. My sister liked that when I read it to her when she was 6 or 7 and has read it herself twioce. :-)

  • My oldest loves these fairy books. The ones she is reading right now are The Weather Fairies. They are by Rainbow Magic and you can find them through Scholastic and I have seen them at Walden books/borders. They are pretty exciting.
