Whether it’s just before bedtime or on a quiet Sunday afternoon, reading a book is an enjoyable experience. However, just as with anything else, a good book is even better when you can share it with your family. To help you find the right book, Bozman Farms has put together a list of some of the top family books to read this year.
1. Charlotte’s Web – E. B. White
This book has been a part of the childhoods of multiple generations. The story of a little girl’s unconditional love and a noble spider make it a treasured part of any childhood.
2. Where the Wild Things Are – Maurice Sendak
While written for ages 0-3, this children’s book entertains all those who read it. It’s the story of a boy who goes on a magical journey and befriends a few wild beasts.
3. The Giving Tree – Shel Silverstein
While on the surface, this book has a simple story about the joys of giving and the risks of taking too much, it can be so much more. It opens the door to a variety of life lessons and teaching opportunities, and it could lead to discussions about love and self-sacrifice.
4. I Took the Moon for a Walk – Carolyn Curtis
This book’s poetically pleasing and lyrical tone makes it a perfect bedtime story. Find your rhythm as you read this book aloud and watch your children drift off to sleep.
5. Animalia – Graeme Base
Books like Animalia offer your children the chance to enjoy what their reading and learn a lot at the same time. Children can learn the same amount of vocabulary as they would by reading an 800-page book.
