The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease

I think every parent should read this book. Reading aloud to your children is the #1 best thing you can do for them academically, according to this book. The second half of the book gives great reading suggestions by approximate age.

The Read-Aloud Family: Making Meaningful and Lasting Connections with Your Kids by Sarah Mackenzie

Another great book for parents to read.
