Early Years Read Alouds

Simply Charollotte Mason

The titles below reflect books that were introduced to our children in their early years (three to five years old) and which they have loved ever since. They include many timeless classics for young children, as well as some newer works that we thought were well written. And of course, some titles are just for fun. Some books below are, unfortunately, out of print, but you should be able to find them through used-book dealers or at the library. Click on a book’s title to see its details. Happy reading!
