penny & i went to see the original charlie and the chocolate factory movie with aunt jodi and patrick a few weeks ago, and we decided to read two chapters a night from the book before bedtime. this went great - even though there weren't many illustrations, she had an idea of the characters and story, and it was a very successful first chapter book endeavor. at 4, she's not great at listening to a book if she has no idea what's coming next and has no illustrations to focus on. any recommendations? i'm thinking maybe "mary poppins"? she's seen the movie... maybe "peter pan"? she hasn't seen the movie, but it might be ok?
