Top Choices for Children's Books, including: My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish, Fancy Nancy & Doll Bones

Reading with my daughters has always been one of my favorite family activities and now that my girls are able to read along with me, I've tried to keep a good collection of their level books on hand as well as a back up list of popular and fun sounding books to look forward too. I'm sharing my back up list with you. The books below are for kids ranging in ages from 5yrs to 8yrs and can be found on Amazon.
