  1. I love reading Mo Willem’s books! I read every new one out loud to my younger classes. They are so fun. I also ready the Little House on the Prairie books. I even read them out loud to my daughter.

  2. I read the Boxcar Children series when I was young and I read them to my children.
    Wouldn’t it be great to live in a boxcar (maybe)?

  3. “The Cat Who Could Read Backwards” …Sounds interesting. I’ll have to add it to my list.
