When did you start reading chapter books to your child? What series or kind of books are best?
Junie B books. There a few series which are chapter books but they dont say chaper 1, chapter 2 inside. Dd is 7 and she has read junie B since last year or actually last year we would read them to her since she was in kindergarten and now she can read them by herself.
We started reading chapter books to her around 3-4. We have read all kinds to her. She reads them to us, her brother or herself now. Currently, she and dh are reading the Narnia books and then they plan to read The Lord of the Rings series together. They also plan to read the Golden Compass series.
Quoting rHOPEb:When did you start reading chapter books to your child? What series or kind of books are best?
My 2nd grader started reading the Magic Tree House books at the end of kindergarten. He also read several Junie B. books last year, but this year has read a wide variety of chapter books. Might try to read Harry Potter with his this summer--part of me would rather read those with him instead of him reading them by himself, but only because I love to read them!
My 7 year old, 1st (Dec. Birthday) loves the Box Car Children, The Baby Sitters Club, and The Magic Tree House
My 6 year old, K (Jan. Birthday) is currently reading the Perfectly Princess books
