2nd Grade Read-Alouds

Michael and I have finally found our groove with the read-aloud.  I'm trying to remember some of the tips that I gave others in my article:   Don't Give Up on the Read-Aloud.  Tips like picking funny books and starting with easier books that have shorter chapters. 
Here's a list of some of the books we've been reading over the first ten weeks of school--some read-aloud and some independent-- :
The Green Ember-- S.D. Smith
The Green Ember series is a new series filled with adventure, sword fights and rabbits.  Michael loves these books!  We can't wait to start reading the newest book-Ember Falls 
Little House on the Prairie-- Laura Ingalls Wilder (Audio)
For some reason, I prefer to listen to an audiobook when it comes to the Little House series.  Cherry Jones is my favorite! 
I love to read aloud books in a series! Michael has already asked about the other books. 
The Magician's Nephew--C.S. Lewis (Part Audio)
The Horse and His Boy--C.S. Lewis (Audio)
Another set of classics!
Strawberry Girl--Lois Lenski
Michael and I read this book while studying a bit about Florida.
Currently reading:
The Year of Miss Agnes--Kirkpatrick Hill

Bears on Hemlock Mountain--Alice Dalgliesh

I have goals of how many books I would like for us to read.  But as long as we just "keep reading...keep reading", that's the more important goal to attain!
