My dd is moving on up to short chapter books so I am compiling a list of titles to check out from our library. We began by reading the Beatrix Potter tales and we have also read My Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannet. Right now we are halfway through with The Milly-Molly-Mandy Storybook by Joyce Lankaster Brisley. Although my dd will listen to the Milly Molly Mandy stories she was much more entralled with My Father’s Dragon and I just noticed that there are two other books in that series.
My list is taken from the Sonlight catalog and the Ambleside and Mater Amabilis sites. Please let me know if there are any not to be missed books that are not here. Note: The pictures of the books are links to the Amazon website.
