My family has spent countless hours reading aloud together. Here are some of our very favorite read-alouds!
10 P’s in a Pod
Who doesn’t want to read about a large family who sang and prayed their way around the country? The writing style and content will have you roaring with laughter at times, but this book is also very convicting and thought-provoking. I can’t recommend it enough.
The Boxcar Children
I always enjoyed reading about the adventures the Aldens had… I
envied admired their creativity and independence! One really nice thing about this book is that the siblings treat each other with love and respect – something that’s sadly missing in our culture and a lot of books now.
Once Upon a Summer
My siblings and I love this book! It stands out from many of the other books written by Janette Oke in that its focus isn’t on the romance. (Do I hear cheers from the guys??? :D) Follow along as Josh – a twelve-year-old farm boy – tries to scare off his aunt’s suitors, gets a puppy, and learns some valuable life lessons.
Don’t laugh… I absolutely love the original Winnie-the-Pooh stories. They’re so sweet and hilarious. Even though they’re written for children, I think adults will enjoy them, as well!
The Hidden Staircase
This Nancy Drew mystery is a fun family read, and even comes recommended by one of my brothers. 🙂
This is another family favorite. Written in the 1800s by Louisa May Alcott – the author of Little Women – it’s incredibly enjoyable, and the timeless lessons woven into it are wonderful.
Bedtime for Frances
This sweet and humorous picture book is written for younger children… but I still love it. 🙂
Five Children & It
Five siblings find out what it’s really like to have their dreams come true… we enjoyed this one immensely!
In Grandma’s Attic
Arleta Richardson based this book on stories her grandmother told about her childhood in the 1800s. It’s hilarious and packed with valuable life lessons. This is a favorite with my younger sisters!
The Little House Series
These classics make wonderful read-alouds… they’re so much better than the TV series! I appreciate the incredible detail and historical accuracy of the descriptions.
And there you have it! What are some of your favorite read-alouds?
