Additional Books

Below is a list of alternative and additional books that go along with this unit. Use these books if you cannot find one of the scheduled stories or as an add-on to extend the unit. Some of these books were used in a previous edition of the unit and may be out of print. Others were books that we just didn’t have room to include in the schedule. Many of the books are titles that have been recommended to us by our readers. Note: we have not read all of the books listed below so please preview any book listed here before reading it with your child. If you have a book that you would like to recommend to our readers, please post the title and author in the comments and we will add it to the list. Thanks!
