What books have you read to your kids?

We are reading Treasure Island and the littlest one is enjoying it the most I think:)  I have several on our to read list including Call of the Wild and Tom Sawyer. Maybe Hunger Games as I have mentioned before.

What books do you want to share with your children?

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

We just finished A Wrinkle in Time and started 39 clues. We read Treasure Island a while ago, it was a big hit. We have also read a few Hardy Boys. The 50's slang has been a bit hard for them to grasp although they enjoy it.

My youngest are teens now, but I have all of their Dr. Seuss books boxed and waiting for grandkids!

 Well, this was 40+ years ago. :-)  It's hard to remember back that far. LOL.When they were small , we read the Dr Seuss books , Richard Scarry's books about Busytown, "what do people do every day",etc. Some of the Caldecott Award and Newbery award books, and "Are You My Mother" and others for toddlers. And as soon as they could read, they started reading books by themselves. They were allowed to read about a half hour each night when they went to bed . And they were encouraged to read any other time of the day, espcially when it was rainy outside and they were bored. :-) There were no computers and video games then either, except for
Pong" .LOL.

My girls liked the Little House on the Prairie books, the whole series.

There are two many to count. DS loved call of the wild, the outsiders, we read hunger games as a family. His reaction when he finishe Hitch Hikers Guide to the Universe was classic. His whole life before that, I would answer tough questions with 42 - when he finished that book, he ran to me - "Really mom 42 Really" I still giggle about that day when he finally got it.

I love Tom Sawyer and will try to read it to my kids. They're fun books with great lessons. I know that i will kee an open mind about all books and encourage my kids to read.

My kids are toddlers. I've been reading to them since they were in my womb. The one thing they agree upon right now is the books I read. They love Harold and the Purple Crayon, Curious George, The Alexander books, and Mo Willems books like 'Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!".
