What are the names of some of the children's books that you have particularly enjoyed reading aloud to your children? What is there about them that makes them your favorite read alouds? Be sure and include the ages for which you recommend each book.

HOUR of ST. MICHAEL read aloud

It was suggested at Authonomy by a teacher of middle grade students that Hour of St. Michael is a good read aloud book. Kind regards, mkildor

My favorite read alouds

For picture books, some of my favorites are Kiss the Cow and Rattletrap Car by Phyllis Root, and Duck in the Truck by Jez Alborough. All three have great cadence when reading and my kids loved them in preschool through early elementary. Now, my kids range from 1st through 5th grade and love it when I read the Percy Jackson series and Harry Potter series, especially when I give each character their own voice. They also love the Weird School series and Roald Dahl books.
