Bookmark: Longer Children’s Books

Part of our Read-a-Thon 2010 highlight posts.

Did you know that you can boost your Read-a-Thon page count by reading aloud to younger siblings (or kids you babysit or what have you)? It’s a great way to introduce them to some of your favorites and increase your Read-a-Thon score at the same time. Here are three longer children’s books for starters:

The Wind in the Willows

In which Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad all have various adventures and misadventures. All ages.

Peter Pan

The classic tale of a boy who didn’t want to grow up. Pirates, Indians, a crocodile, and more fill the pages of this swashbuckling book. All ages.

Winnie the Pooh

How can we not mention Pooh? Read the books if you’ve seen the videos and I’ll almost guarantee you’ll like the books better. The person reading aloud will likely be laughing more than the person being read to. All ages.
