Chapter Books

We took a new step in our house last night at bedtime. Instead of our usual picture books, Dylan & I curled up with my childhood copy of Stuart Little and I read the first two chapters to him.

I'm excited. This has opened a whole new realm of bedtime story possibilities. I have a few other childhood favorites on my bookshelf, but when I added the book to Goodreads, it made several suggestions that jarred my memory - The Mouse and the Motorcycle, The Cricket in Times Square, The Boxcar Children, James and the Giant Peach, etc.

What were some of your favorite childhood books?


  1. Oh my goodness, we should talk! I have some that are great and some that were a HUGE flop for us. :) So fun, though, right?! I love the chapter books! Hugs to D and miss you all.

  2. Boxcar Children, Little House on the Prairie set... SO fun!

  3. How exciting! I really can't wait to read Harry Potter to M. Your bedtime routine just got so much more special. Enjoy!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them all. :)
