Like most families part of our bedtime routine is to read books. Now that Nathan is older he typically spends time reading on his own as he reads chapter books. Part of his homework though is to spend time reading out loud to work on his word pronunciation. So we do get to hear what he is reading.
Every night though (unless we are out late or too sick/tired) Karensa cuddles up with one us to read a book (or two or three) before bed. Sometimes she even sits with Nathan and he reads to her. When it is a book that Nathan really likes, typically one I read to him when he was younger he will join us.
Below is a list some of our favourite books and why they make the list. We have a good collection of books in our house and when we want something different we take a trip to the library. But some books are just so good that they get read over and over!
