This is Children's book week and I thought today I would suggest some books that your kids might like. To begin with I would suggest for younger children some books my grandson loves like Veggie Tales Books. He is two and loves those books but also right now some of his favorites are Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dowdney, ( he called and tried to read this one to me yesterday well at least he got the title right and then just jabbered away but I understood) as well as Curious George by H A Rey, Star Wars and Clifford the Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell. So any of these would be great for reading to your toddlers and then as they start learning to read to read themselves.
Next for the older children they might like books like Bryan Davis Dragons In Our Midst Series. There are four books to the series and it is excellent for older kids who like magic and fantasy as well as dragons. Bryan Davis has other good series of books too. Another series they might like is DragonKeeper Chronicles by Donita K Paul this is a five book fantasy series also. For older teens besides these two fantasy series they might also like the Left Behind Series for Kids by Jerry B Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. This series of books is based on the adult books of the Left Behind Series but from the kids point of view. I have read these and they are excellent too. These are just a few of the books that you might want to check into for your kids. There are many more to choose from and the most important thing is to get the kids reading.
What books do your kids like? If you have suggestions to add to our Getting Kids to Read List let me know.
