The Underland Chronicles: Books 1-5 Paperback Box Set by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Here at The Green Baby Guide, we mostly review books for babies or about babies. For those of you with older children or that are kids at heart, you might enjoy these books as much as I did.

I bought this set years ago with the intention of gifting them. The right opportunity never presented itself and, after deciding that the set had been taking up space in my present bin for too many years, I thought I might as well read them myself.

Chapter Books for Reading Out Loud to Young Children

This year will be a banner year for reading in my household. Right after my daughter’s fifth birthday, I made an amazing discovery: Audrey finally has the attention span to listen to me read chapter books out loud!

The first book we tried was The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. She surprised me with her ability to follow this 111-year-old tale of Dorothy and her little dog Toto’s extraordinary adventure. There are some scary parts (the flying monkeys creeped her out), but she stuck with it until the end.

I had fond memories of the Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner, so we tried that next. Success!
