10 Great Chapter Books for Kinder - Second Grade

Reading with our son is one of the things that I cherish the most. Every night we devote 15 minutes to reading with him and it is my favorite time of the day.

Not only is reading aloud to your children a way to expand their vocabulary and set them up for reading success in the future, but it is a wonderful way to incorporate calm into your evening.

Here is a list of my favorite chapter books that we have read (not ranked in order of favorites … we love them all!). I hope you and your children enjoy them as much as we do!
