Preschool & Kindergarten Read Aloud Book List – Novels

I compiled this list from these 2 sources (The Read-Aloud Handbook by Jim TreleaseThe Favorite Read-Aloud Books for Preschoolers link from the Simply Charlotte Mason website). The books are color coated so you know which list they originally came from. I was overwhelmed by the different lists and wanted something to go off of for when we make our library trips so I know what some good books are to read. It’s also nice to have them alphabetized and printed out as a goal if you will. We cross off the books when we read them. I wonder how long it’ll take for us to read the whole list? I hope this helps some of you!
