When parents choose what books to read for family read-aloud time, they're not only promoting healthy literacy habits and being reading role models for their children, it's also a great bonding opportunity.
In the sixth edition of the Scholastic Kids and Family Reading Report, parents just like you were asked what books they could read over and over to their kids. From new favorites that make their little one giggle to old-time classics that moms and dads had on their bookshelves, this list is full of perfect read aloud books spanning across all age bands.
