Our Favorite Read Alouds

Reading books together is quite possibly one of my most favorite things to do with my kids.  We have traveled together through the pages of hundreds of books.  

Below is the complete list of all of the chapter books that we've read aloud (since the summer of 2011).  The ones that we have loved the most and would most recommend are marked with an *.  The ones that we've actually loved so much that we've read at least twice are marked with two or more **.
