    I've agreed to organize the list. I'll collect suggestions for a few days & then post the list, which will be updated periodically.

    Thanks for the great suggestions so far! Keep them coming!

    My dd4 loves these books because the stories are sweet but the language is lyrical and in the case of potter and Kipling very rich

    I would mark these with "Caution" or "YMMV," particularly for the very young age group. All three are rather grim in their different ways. Some children may pick up on the disturbing implications and others may not.

    I guess so, I'd struggle to read these to an older child though. I think a lot of the issues that come up in the book are more to do with old fashion values and gentle intro to some of the harsh realities of life - which in times gone by was generally done through story telling - I have to admit though that even though my DD understand the subtext of the stories she is not the most sensitive child in the world.

    We borrowed this from the library and DD would have really enjoyed it a year ago:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0746085346/ref=rdr_ext_tmb

    I think this is part of a reading series. I'm going to see if I can borrow other books from the series.

    We read a ton of Berenstain Bears and Angelina Ballerina. Although, my daughter will read almost anything. She even reads the captioning off the TV, lol. She's 3.5 now but we've been reading these for a while. She still can't read these books super smoothly by herself, but she'll read most of it. I love all these suggestions; I'm going to have to make a list!
