Please tell me which one of these books is “the one” that will put the child to sleep. You also said there was an audio of this book.(I think the audio was a female with an English accent) I have a friend that has a 3 and 4 1/2 year old. I will print this list, but I would love to be the “Shero” and find this book. Thank You. Love your show!

Books by Julia Donaldson and Johnny Duddle -UK authors of the Gruffalo and Room on the Broom (LOVE!!!), and the Pirates Next Door and Pirate Cruncher. My boys loved them and now I’m introducing my 7yo sons classmates to them.

My son was six years old when I read him his first chapter book. We read “Where the Red Fern Grows.” About a week after we finished that, we read “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.” The first made him cry like crazy. The second made him laugh until he couldn’t laugh anymore. Those two extremes inspired a love for reading that continues today. Now he’s 10 and he’d much rather pick up a book than a screen. We’re pretty happy about that.
