Classic Reads for Summer Fun

Classic Books for Kids

My nine-year-old daughter and I have so much fun reading books together. She is just the right age for some of the favorite classic literature, and there is a reason why these books are part of the classic or recent children literature canon.

As a teacher I've found that students have a lot of success in school when parents read along with their children. It could be:

  • listening to a book on audio together
  • reading aloud (parent and child taking turns)
  • reading a chapter silently and then talking about each chapter

It is such fun to remember favorite characters through the eyes of a younger generation plus these great books are just a joy to revisit!
