I love reading a chapter book to the kids. My five and eight-year-old are getting to the age where they are now able to grab a book and read by themselves, but our favorite time of the week is Friday and Saturday nights where we grab our favorite chapter books and read together. Over the last year or so I have begun collecting a list of the best read aloud chapter books for young kids.
In our quest to make reading more appealing, I’ve learned not to rush things. I know what they understand and what they don’t, if they aren’t connecting the dots in a story, we will go back and reread parts they need help with. This helps comprehension and teaches me patience. If you’re worried about your child’s attention span, choose a book with drawings or doodles every few pages. The illustrated Harry Potter editions or Roald Dahl books are perfect. Check out my list of best chapter books for young kids below. Let me know your favorites in the comment section.
