 My DD that is 8 just this year started following them well enough that we can have discussions about the book!

Oh gosh, I have been reading chapter books to her for years. Probably since she was 3 or 4. She started reading them on her own at about the end of 5, early 6 I'd say. She started with Junie b jones as her first chapter books. (besides those little reader books that have super short chapters)

 We just started Junie B Jones, age 7 end of first grade. But we only do a chapter a day then she has a small reflective writing to do on the chapter.

I'm doing almost the same thing with my 6 year old daughter.  She reads a chapter a day and then writes about it.  I trying to include some questions like, "How do you think the character felt when a certain event happened?"  She loves the Junie B. Jones books.  She also reads to her younger sisters (2,3, and 5).  Now I am noticing that she's mimicking me and asking them similar questions.

DD could in first but DS is in first and can't do it, independently.

My daughter was about 3 listening and I think an older 4 reading them independently.

My son was probably 5 listening and 5 reading independently.
