The kids also got a few chapter books for Christmas. This was our first try with a chapter book. I wasn't sure if they would remember what we had read the night before. Or if they would insist on finishing the book all in one night. Or if they would think it was boring. We tried it and they LOVE it.
We started with The Magic Tree House series. They have short chapters, simple but interesting stories, a few pictures but not to many and each chapter ends in a total cliffhanger for my kids. It's really cute to hear their expressions or see their faces when its over. The also have funny little conversations about "Jack and Annie" the two characters. We're now on our second chapter book and I've ordered more.
I love reading with my kids.
