message 1: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis I question the listing of the Beatrice Potter books; while they are delightful to read aloud, they are not chapter books. In fact, after I saw them, I started adding other picture books, and then saw the title of the list and had to go back and remove those I had just added. But seriously, if B. Potter can be here, who's to say we can't throw in some Dr. Seuss, even a little Good Night Moon?


message 2: by Niecy (new)

Niecy M. Donna, I also saw Beatrice Potter's books and made the humm sound. Not sure of the angel that was used to selected those books but I agree with you on this one.


message 3: by Roz (new)

Roz Radmore Donna Good Night Moon is on the list and some Dr Seuss

Thank you; and yet, the list's description specifies chapter books. It's kind of messed up.


message 5: by Sonja (last edited Jan 21, 2019 01:57PM) (new)

Sonja A Beatrix Potter Treasury and/or other collections of BP's stories should be here instead of the small, individual works.


message 6: by Truman (new)

Truman This is wack


message 7: by Sally (new)

Sally The Remarkable Adventures of Hamish the Cat
Great fun for ages 4 or 5 on up. A book that is fun to read or listen to at any age!

Another wonderful book to read aloud to children from age 7on up. Fun for grown-ups, too.Hamish Dreams
