Each month Eleanor and I share the chapter books we read. We've been reading chapter books since before Kindergarten and her attention span as a four year old was definitely something to brag about. Eleanor was born a reader and that makes my heart so, so happy.
I am making a couple changes because Eleanor is becoming a more independent reader at home. She has no problem plowing through books at school, but at home she prefers I read to her while she is drawing, painting, working on a science project, etc. Plus, who doesn't also love being read to at bedtime?

If you work with younger children, I highly recommend Something Bad Happened. I reviewed it as an ARC a couple years ago and purchased it after Uvalde. It has been tremendously helpful for Eleanor to cope with and understand our stupid, fucked-up country right now. We read a chapter or a section at a time. It can be overwhelming to think about otherwise.
Currently Reading Independently*
*Eleanor has begun reading more than one book at a time. I can't imagine where she got that idea from.

Do the kiddos in your life have an interest in any of these?
