Top Ten Tuesday

This week The Broke and the Bookish have given us a choice.  The list is “Ten Books Every ______ Should Read” and we get to fill in the blank.  I have chosen to do “Ten Books Every Parent Should Read Aloud to their Child(ren)”

We’ll start with two of my favorites for Preschool to Kindergarten age.


Now, some great books to read with children in their elementary years.


This is the first book of a fantastic series, and if you’re like me and you read to your kiddos using different voices for different characters and do accents too, you and your kids will build wonderful memories together while sharing good books.


Another great series by the same author as pick #3, with the same main characters.


The complete original Little House on the Prairie series is another great series to share with your children.

The Chronicles of Narnia is a great series too.  The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe remains my very favorite of this series.


These last three are great to read and discuss with your teenagers.  Yes, teenagers still like to be read to.  I could have listed more books for teens, but this is only a list of ten.




Yes, I have read all of these books with my older boys and am still working on reading some of them with my youngest.  They are good quality books with good lessons to be learned, and they have great topics for discussion and teaching moments.

  1. I love that Mockingbird made your list! I don’t have kids (yet?) but I can’t wait to read aloud to them one day. My parents read to me when I was a kid, and it definitely contributed to my love of reading.
