Recently I received an email from Stacy asking for read-aloud recommendations for her four-year-old daughter. I thought more of you might like to see what I sent to her. This list is rather girl-centric, so I'll post a boyish read-aloud list for the youngest ones in your family soon.
Don't be bound by books you think might be appealing because your little ones are, well, little. My friend Melissa read the entire Chronicles of Narnia to her little girls while they were in the bath. Over a course of months, of course. But they weren't in the bath all those months... ok, I'll stop now.
