I've found many a good book from people posting about what they have been reading aloud.
So, I thought I would share what we have been reading aloud this year (so far).
Keep in mind, this is only the "official" read aloud list, it does not include the many hundreds of just-for-fun shorter stories, holiday related, and audio books we have read/listened to--not to mention the tangents that most of these books have led us on!

Where the Wild Things Are

Mr. Popper's Penguins
(plus lots of books on penguins)

The Biggest Bear
(plus maple sugaring books)

The Swiss Family Robinson
(the unabridged version--a significant chunk of literature!)

A Little Princess 
(the children's version)

The Mouse and the Motorcycle

Little Rascal
(plus raccoon books)

The Indian in the Cupboard
(plus books on Native American homes and the Iroquois in particular)

The Return of the Indian

The Light of the World:  The Life of Jesus for Children

Blueberries for Sal
(plus books on blueberries, bears, Maine, Robert McCloskey, )

Pages of History:  Secrets of the Ancients
(Think "Story of the World" but more fun and from a Christian perspective!)

The Adventures of Ulysses
(plus stories of the Trojan war and Greek mythology)

So many books, so little time.
What have you been reading to your children?
