      The End of Oz, by Danielle Paige. It’s a Young Adult Book, the fourth in the Dorothy Must Die series, but it’s great as far as story re-imaginings go. (This one being The Wizard of Oz, obviously.) My son is 4 and he actually loves it when I read it aloud.

      My kids that are 7,5, and 4 love the elephant and piggie books by Moe Willems. These are especially a favorite of my two younger kids. They are pretty funny and they teach some good lessons too. My older son who is reading short chapter books loves the Magic Bone books and Magic Tree House books.

      The more your children see you taking time out to read, the better odds you have of them being bookworms! 🙂

      Get a library card from your local library and start there. Most libraries have pretty great play areas/children’s sections and that is a great way to get them excited about the library and passionate about books. Most kiddos will happily pick out their own books to take home(even when they are not yet at reading age!)

      Take some time to browse for yourself and grab whatever looks interesting to you. The young adult section can be a good place to start as someone else recommended. If you can give me more info into what you like I could recommend some authors. 😉 Movies you enjoy can be a good clue.

      We do PJ Library, too as MusMomof2 mentioned!

      Currently I am on a streak of reading Neil Gaiman’s books. SO magical!

      For a more…drama but glamour beach read, Jackie Collins is my favorite. For thrillers I love Harlan Coben and Jonathan Kellerman.

        Check out your local library (mentioned in another post above). Many have a LOT of services to take advantage of : book recommendations, bagged kits on a theme that include books and craft projects etc, story time, play areas. And a lot more. Our local library gives out free passes to area museums – you can get one per family per week. A tremendous deal and opportunity for field trips.

      I read Chuck Palahniuk’s “Fight Club” – never read it before. I must say that it’s a great book and it’s much more interesting than the movie. Strongly reccomend it.

      A good readers should be a mentor or a writer. He can make good decisions in life because reading influences a person a lot and it changes his way of thinking.

      It is going to be hard to want your kid to be a book worm but you are not. I am a true believe that children follow what they see and learn. It just so happens that i love reading and learning and my children do also although they are grown now so I am working with my grand daughter and my nephew if they see you doing it and get excited by it they will want to follow along. I suggest trying to read to your kid and help him or her to read along that way they can learn and it can be fun for them. Make it an adventure.

      I am currently reading Once Upon a Dream: A Twisted Tale. I should say that I am attempting to read the book because it is hard to do much with my 14 month old, but I am going to try. The book is taking the Sleeping Beauty Story, but changing it some. I have always loved fairy tales so I thought this would be interesting even through it was in the Young Adult or Teen section.
      For you little ones I think it depends the age. My 9 year-old is not big into reading, but has to for school. He struggles a little bit with the comprehension part, however it helps when it is something he likes to read. He really enjoys nature and informative books, and loves reading all the different Minecraft books. His teachers this year are really good about the kids reading and encourage comic books or magazines. If a child is interested in the topic or style it helps them.
      With my 14 month-old, he loves pop-up books and other interactive books. Actually he just started to mimic the books that have talking parts.
      Thanks for posting the questions. It is nice to get ideas from other moms on books.

      I read a lot of books in a day to my two-year-old. A series that I’m currently reading to him is the Magic Tree House. I wish I could post a picture of his library here. Anyways, we do a lot of trading out at the little free libraries. I also find a bunch of books at thrift stores. Second hand is also called recycling so why not. You save money, help the plant and educate/entertain your child.

    • #17879

      I love reading. When my kids were little it was Dr. Seuss, Winnie The Pooh, Ronald Dahl, Fairy Tale books, and Disney, just to name a few. I was also a young mother back then. As my kids got older they still enjoyed reading any and everything that could/would peak their interest. Even my college text books got read by my kids as they found them to be interesting and informative. I also read a lot when I was pregnant with them as reading was a great way to me to relax and escape for awhile and it still is–LOL…

      I just finished reading Oh Crap! Potty Training =) I’m also in the middle of Hands Free Mama, which is AMAZING and I highly recommend. The book summary does a good job of summing up the storyline: “A Guide to Putting Down the Phone, Burning the To-Do List, and Letting Go of Perfection to Grasp What Really Matters!” All things I struggled a lot with! It’s helping me make strides!

      you just need to find what your into. I used to be the exact same way! I’m 28 with 4 kiddos and I HATED reading.

I love nonfiction and find myself reading and getting lost in time. its just crazy the difference.

      My kids love books. I’m glad they want to read me their books, our youngest is only 3 so she can’t read yet but she loves being read to and every time I read to her I notice that my other two kiddos (ages 6 and 8) come and join us every time they hear me reading to her.

    • #26815

      Jonathan Stroud, Lockwood and co.(currently reading) and Bartimaeus series, Nancy Clancy(my girls fav.) Little Blue truck(great for memory recall) I have also signed them up for Lego magazine which comes every month and Imagination Library, kids look forward to books coming in the mail and want to read over and over. Also any e-books my kids like most are free on Amazon and Amazon prime you can also get free e-books for you and the kids as part of the membership. I love reading a book series with my older kids it’s like our private little book club, so much fun to talk about what they liked about the book.My kids love our little library we have started, there is not a moment that I do not see one of them browsing the books to pick one to read.

    • #28004

      We are currently reading 2 books. My son just finished potty training and a big book for us during that time was ‘Everyone Poops’. He wouldn’t go #2 because he was scared he would fall in. Its a great book. We are also reading ‘Going to the dentist’.

      My girls love reading Magic Tree House books. But the best advice is to join local library, kids have a chance to explore. Most libraries host special events for kids, which are introduction to new books through play. In addition to library my kids love visiting book stores, as they told me once they love going to book store as they feel like stepping into magical world, where imagination lives when they explore all new book that are beautifully illustrated.

      I suggest the Harry Potter books or maybe Percy Jackson. Some people think these books may be too old for some kids, but they tackle a lot of important social issues if you squint.

      I am currently reading “Girl Wash Your Face” By Rachel Hollis. I am loving it! She totally crushed writing this book and I think it is a great book for women to read everywhere. It really hits home about how often we forget to take care of ourselves. We are people, too, and out mental health and physical well being is just as important as our husbands’ and children’s’ is!!
