You could try The Golden Acorn or Lily's Wand. My 9 year old has enjoyed them both.

Henry Horse and Friends

Adventures with animals down on the farm. My 8 year old niece thoroughly enjoyed it.

My own two children were read to every night until about the age of 9, and there was also a healthy smattering of audio classics such as Winnie the Pooh, Alice in Wonderland, 101 Dalmations etc. especially for my daughter who was scared of the dark and sleep in genera,l so frequently went to sleep with the sound of Alan Bennett gently evoking a happier world. As a primary teacher too, I can say there is NO MORE IMPORTANT thing a parent can do for a child than to read to them every night. E books definitely have a place but if you really want to make a change to your children's lives then read, read. read to them even when they can do it for themselves

Must admit that was what I was wondering. In terms of whether we should stop and try to get them to read their own story once they can. I've compromised with the deal that he reads the first page of his chapter and I read the rest. Seems to work.

I cannot see what's wrong about advertising your own book on this forum, it's only another way of letting other people know about it. I've read some posts that have made me want to know more about the book that's mentioned, maybe even buy it, but nobody is forcing me.

Re: reading to the far away.
I became interested in reading to the far away when I was involved in a prison literacy program. The goal was to get imprisoned parents able to read a book to their child on a visit. This helps build intimacy and relationship between estranged family members. It works very well to build adult readers confidence.

Later when my nephew was stationed with his parents far away from us we used Skype to read. Again you are soi something enjoyable that builds trust and positive memories. It's my hope that my book, with it's choice driven format, would be good for grandparents away from their grandchildren. I'll have to test it on some remote grandparents and see!

Another tip for fun bedtime reading: The Dark Shadow: A Pirate Adventure or The Nightwatchman of Grave's End (The Story of Ebur)

Both stories are by Mary Edwards, who has held the title of family storyteller for years, and is now sharing her stories with other children!

Her mini-site is here: http://mary-edwards-stories.blogspot.co.uk/

Have you noticed the Amazon anouncement asking authors not to do this? Many customers ahve left this site because everyome some one asks a legitimate question authors dredge up old posts to flog their own work. It really isn't fair to people who are honestly looking for help finding books and it is just these types of books that put people off kindle books unless they have print counterparts.

Thankfully Amazon is meant to be taking action asking for the AISB's numbers of products spamming this site. I hope they remove them all from amazon completely.

Manuela Encarnacao - the problem is for every real post there are 10 by auhtors flogging books that will not sell. It buries any real questions and means people can not honestly discuss books as every post is monopolised by unpaid advertisements. Personally - I feel if is so poor the only way to get people to buy it it is by spamming every post - it isn't worth the time to read it.
