The children loved hearing My Father's Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett. If you are looking or a book to read with your child, you might consider the other two books in the trilogy: Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland.
We are currently reading Henry and Ribsy by Beverly Cleary. Although Beverly Cleary's books were written in the 1950's, they are still loved by children today. Last week while reading this book, we got into an interesting discussion about how "back then" there were not seat belts in cars and children didn't use car seats. One child explained how her father had to have stitches in his head because he didn't wear a seat belt.
