100 Best Children’s Chapter Books of All Time

Children of all ages love to be read to.  Books are such a fascinating way to explore our world around us and to stretch our imaginations.  Very young children get their information about the book through the pictures.  As these same readers mature and become readers themselves, they begin to leave the picture books behind and break into the world of chapter books.  Ask any first grader what kind of books they like to read and you will almost certainly hear “chapter books”.  They are not always sure what they mean by this, but they do believe that they are now too old for picture books.  (this is definitely not true – but that is a topic for another day) Not all children who think they are ready for chapter books or parents who think that their child is ready for a chapter book are really ready. To be ready for a chapter book, your child must understand what has been read.  Is he/she able to retell all of the important events of a chapter before heading to the next chapter?  Who are the characters?  What is the setting? Always ensure that your child is not just calling out the words without meaning attached to what is being read. When you are certain that your child is ready for a chapter book, whether he/she reads it on his/her own, or whether it is read chapter by chapter at night with a parent, here are some books for you. I came across this site that has a list of 100 best chapter books for young children.  Parents you may recognize some of these books from your childhood, others are new to the list.  Take a moment to look through the books, and then go to the library to pick a few out.  You can start as early as today reading a chapter book with your child, or encouraging your child to read and retell the book with you.  Either way, enjoy the list:

  1. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always helpful to read content from other writers and practice something from their websites.

  2. This is because it gives you more precise targeting opportunities,
    lets you combine audio ads with synchronized banners
    and buttons to maximize visibility and retain attention, lets your listeners take an immediate action (after
    all, they are only a click away from your site) and puts you in control of your advertising campaign (you can pay the service provider on the basis of the
    actual number of impressions). We definitely like
    it’s simple, clean black styling, push-button central dial and nicely labeled front controls, and the way that stations have sounded as we. Closed at heels, all the interruptions of RJs too can be kept aside, thanks to odysseystreaming.

  3. This is more important than ever in a world where there
    are dozens of different audio formats. And once you have your own project that you
    want to promote, you must have considered
    the radio as one of the best alternatives to
    introduce your music to the crowds. Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar: The
    Duke Red Matter (Part One; CBS, 1956)’Abbott Stables’s Duke Red is a thoroughbred destroyed over a serious injury in an accident,
    and Dollar (Bob Bailey)’asked to review a $65,000 insurance claim on the horse’smells trouble when the stable’s business manager is dismissed after filing the claim, and its veterinarian may have destroyed the horse a little too swiftly.

  4. Where there was less effort wasted, so is less time wasted.
    Sometimes you might find that they tweet questions you can answer (in person or on
    the phone) or sometimes you might find opportunities to
    do more business with them. For business purpose, Twitter can be used to broadcast your company.

  5. This began in the Garden of Eden when Satan tempted Eve:
    “You shall be like God. The best way to prevent fleas from jumping on your pet and coming back into the house is to use a natural deterrent. Scratching is a natural behaviour for cats, although you’ve probably figured this out by now given the state of your furniture and curtains.
