My little ones, like anybody's, loooooove to hear stories. We go through picture books like crazy, and it is a wonderful fall back when I have an unexpected extra 10 minutes. However, I am thinking it would be so much easier for those unexpected times, to have a longer book that we are working through in a handy location to just pull out...rather than always having to make sure I have a ton of picture books nearby, and keeping track of which class (morning or afternoon) has read what. Does anybody read chapter books to pre-kers, for an extended set of days? How do you like it? How do they?
