Reading Aloud to Your Young Reader- Try Margaret Wise Brown

animals in the snow  another important book  Margaret Wise Brown is one of my favorite authors for young children. Her books seem to draw young children in with their theme and simplicity. Famous for her well known books Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny, Brown also wrote hundreds of other books and stories. Most of Brown's books have animals as characters in them. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them, so many of her books rhyme or repeat a word pattern. I feel that these are some of the qualities that make her books so appealing to young children. These books are certainly the kind that children beg you to read over and over again. (The number one sign that you are sharing the right book with your children!)
She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which is different from the way an adult would tell a story.
If you are looking for some children's books that will be a hit with your young reader, definitely give this author and her works a try. You will not be disappointed.
