Reading aloud from novels is one of my favorite things to do. I enjoy reading picture books, as well, but there is nothing like a good children’s novel, shared out loud.
I tend to think it pays off to be careful about what those very first novels are, though. A cumbersome, boring, or otherwise unpleasant first experience with longer narrative can really take the wind out of your sails, and who needs that?
If you’re just getting started reading aloud from novel-length books with your kids, you’ll enjoy it more if you ease in with book that have short chapters, fantastic characters, and easy-to-follow plot lines.
Just click the images to find the book on Amazon. These are affiliate links. It makes a big difference when you use them, so thank you!
You can pretty much close your eyes and pick any single one of those books and you’ll be in good shape. :) If your child is at all nebulous about listening to a story without any pictures, give one of these a go and see what he says after. :)
I’ve got some more thoughts on reading middle grade novels with kids over at Simple Homeschool, and a podcast episode of the Read-Aloud Revival on this topic, too. In the podcast episode, I share my best tips and tricks for making the transition from picture books to chapter books and novels as smooth as possible, and I share which author I think is the #1 best to start with. :) You can listen to it here.How to clean the house quickly tips what does nvp mean what does institutionalized mean what are good snacks for diabetics How to teach my dog tricks and commands How to get pregnant male tips A steeple is when you lightly tap the tips of your fingers together mason How to reset my airpods?
