Reading with kids

1. The Island of Skog
I loved this book. Read it to the boys on one of their overnights, and we talked about the mystery and the magic of the story.

2. The Biggest Bear
The graphics are wonderful. The story builds up to what you think will be a bad ending, but then there is hope. Sort of.

3. The Mysterious Tadpole
A gift that turns out to be not quite as expected. Funny.

4. Amos & Boris
Lovely story about a mouse who heads out for an adventure and is helped by a whale. And one day is able to return the favor. Quite fun.

5. The Elves and the Shoemaker
This is the only book on this list that I had read as a kid - though do not recall that the elves were naked!

6. Haunted Castle on Hallow's Eve
Luke continues to read his way through the Magic Tree House series. In MTH # 30, Jack and Annie are on a Merlin Mission to a very spooky castle. Where are all the people?

7. Summer of the Sea Serpent
In MTH #31 Jack and Annie have another adventure filled with danger, magic and mystery. This is one of the best books yet.
