Last week I mentioned a read-aloud for girls that boys will like too, so this week I thought I should mention a read-aloud for boys that girls will like too. When I’m picking chapter books to read to the kids I try to make sure that everyone will like the story.
One such book is Robert McCloskey’s Homer Price. Each of the chapters in the book tells the story of a mystery happening in Homer’s small town. We thought these stories were really fun and interesting. Judging by the make-believe play that has happened since we read the book, I think the kids liked the chapter about the donut machine best.
We love McCloskey’s illustrations and count several of his other books among our favorites, like Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, Make Way for Ducklings, The Story about Ping, and Lentil. If you don’t know and love Robert McCloskey’s books yet, you should check them out!
I’m linking up at Read Aloud Thursday tomorrow, so be sure to check out the other recommendations there!
