Having been a child myself in the early 50s, there are classic books I feel should never be neglected in a child’s reading repertoire.
Though I don’t have the space to mention them all, these were the stuff of our children’s early homeschool reading aloud experience. They are all still around and available today because they strike a chord in all who read them – parent and child alike.
They set an enriching foundation in the heart and mind of children age 2 through 7 or 8. In my opinion, reading aloud should continue even after a child has mastered reading on his or her own and beyond.

Emotions were taut in postwar Germany.
Corrie ten Boom met with many who suffered from severe guilt. For instance, in a railway station she gave her suitcase to a boy to carry, and a man came up to her and whispered, “We Germans are all thieves; don’t trust that boy.” Before she reached her train, five different Germans had warned her.
God seemed to be confirming that He wanted her to carry His message of forgiveness into this wounded country.
