Best books to read aloud

    Apologies if this has been done before, I did a search but only found posts from several years ago so thought I'd start a new one :)

    I'm wondering what your favourite books are to read aloud to your classes? It would be great to have a big thread of good books for all age groups.
  2. I have just read Clockwork by Philip Pullman to our Year 5 and 6 and they have loved it. We have a radio station so I read it across the air waves!
    I am doing a Jeremy Strong book next week for Year 3 and 4.
  3. UKS2 classes love Holes by Louis Sachar. It also has short chapters which helps!
  4. Varjak Paw, S.F. Said
    I have read it to yr5 a number of times. It is great, children love it and each short chapter ends with a cliff hanger. Highly recommend it!
  5. I'm reading The Magic Faraway Tree with my Y3/4 class (we read The Enchanted Wood last term), which they absolutely adore. I made a point of getting the original versions without any of the over-the-top politically correct alterations, and the kids haven't even commented on the names of the children!
