Both our boys hold a special place in their hearts for My Father's Dragon. It was the first chapter book that really hooked them.

I Know a Shy Fellow Who Swallowed a Cello. Random, but perfect for my music-obsessed little guy.

Right now it's The Book With No Pictures. My son thinks it's hilarious!
Stephanie Williams

Big Nate, Geronimo Stilton and Star Wars Jedi Academy: A New Class are my oldest's favorites right now — he's super into graphic novels. My youngest son is loving Elephant and Piggie and the Pigeon books (both by Mo Willems).

It's the Little House series right now, but also books by Arnold Lobel and Kevin Henkes are forever favorites.

Last year when my son was 5 years old, we made a top 5 list after reading over 150 children's books over summer break. His favorite was Prince William by Gloria Rand, about a child saving a baby seal from an oil spill. This year, it might be Star Stuff: Carl Sagan and the Mysteries of the Cosmos by Stephanie Roth Sisson.

Currently we are reading How to Track a Truck by Jason Carter Eaton and Pet Show! by Ezra Jack Keats nearly constantly.
