Reading to Little People

I was recently asked for reading suggestions for a family who tried Grimm’s with their 3yo, but didn’t care for the violence and death.

My intital list is as follows:

The Hundred Dresses by Estes
Stuart Little by White
The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Cleary
Charlotte’s Web (White again)
The Wizard of Oz (the series–which I’d rather poke my eyes out with sticks than read aloud, but my Dd, then 3 and 4 absolutely LOVED).
Holes by Sachar
The Wind in the Willows by Grahame
The Fledgling by Langton (Dd LOVED this book . . . but was very distressed when she concluded she couldn’t learn to fly)
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Snicket (these are immensely fun to read aloud)
