50 favorite chapter books to read aloud to young children

Last month I made a list of the 50 best read-aloud chapter books for kids. The list consisted of books I have already read to my two young boys and some more that we were planning on reading. Check out the post to find out what I have learned while reading books aloud to my kids. I am so pleased because that post is officially my most popular one. I’m pleased because it means that families are excited about reading together and I LOVE that! I had comments flooding in from all over with favorite chapter books that you have read to your children and I HAD to make them into their own special list.

Thank you for your comments and keep reading to your kids! They will use their imaginations, broaden their vocabulary, form a love of reading, and go on an adventure all while snuggling and bonding with you.

So without further adieu, here is YOUR list of favorite read-aloud chapter books for kids.
