15 Children’s Books Your 4-7 Year Old Shouldn’t Miss!

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a really cute idea for encouraging independent reading.  I thought I would also share some books my girls have LOVED between the ages of 4-7 or so:

I think Ruby the Copycat and Chocolatina are among my girls’ top five favorite books!

When ED was around 4, she absolutely adored The Cat Came Back. I read it nightly for months!

Everyone’s probably heard of Chrysanthemum, but my girls really loved The Chimpanzees of Happytown and The Big Orange Splot so I had to include this collage as well!

My girls also love Cinder Edna and A Bad Case of Stripes (affiliate links)

Right now ED’s favorite books are the Madeline books and this wonderful collection, The 20th-Century Children’s Book Treasury: Picture Books and Stories to Read Aloud,  which has an amazing selection of well-known children’s stories (Chicka Chicka Boom Boom; Swimmy; A Chair for My Mother; Goodnight Moon, Millions of Cats; Guess How Much I Love You; Amelia Bedelia; Harry and the Dirty Dog; The Sneetches; Sylvester and the Magic Pebble… and on and on!) There is a total of 44 stories!  It’s the one book we take when we go away for the weekend.

    Don’t miss Scaredy Squirrel books and Mo Willems books, too! I love Steven Kellogg’s books as well and recognize most of the books you’ve mentioned as ones we’ve read.
