Chapter and Verse

I have neglected the older kids for a while now so today I am looking at chapter books and some poetry for kids of all ages.  The chapter books are definitely for older children but use your own discretion.

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
This is the classic story of a girl, a pig, a spider and the meaning of friendship.

Bridge to Terabitihia by Katherine Paterson
Two friends build a world of their own until reality tears it apart.  A story of friendship and heart break.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
A young boy searches for the meaning of his father's final message.

Now We Are Six by A.A. Milne
Poems that will make you wish we could all stay six forever and ever.

Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
Fun and funny poems that really appeal to kids.  My kids introduced me to this one and I'm so glad they did.
So, cuddle up this week with  a chapter book or some verse and until next week, keep on reading.
