Classical Conversations, Cycle 1, Read Aloud Book List: Part 2

From a very early age we have tried to instill a love of reading in our daughter's heart. Her Daddy and I are voracious readers and we would be perfectly happy if the tv is never turned on. We'd much rather be reading or doing something with music than watching a show on tv.

In my quest to encourage our daughter to read more books, I have tried to find read-aloud books that will tie in with her curriculum in the upcoming school year, which will be here before we know it! I've already posted a list of books that I've found so far. Well, the list has grown some since then! We will start from where we left off...
