Books to read to a nearly 5 year old

Options
We have just finished reading the box set of Roald Dahl books, and I am looking for something else to read DS.

I would prefer longer novel style books, as he looks forward to having a couple of chapters each night, and I enjoy quizzing him about the plot and discussing what happened so far..

Any suggestions?

    If you have time, have you thought of visiting your local library with him and let him choose his own books, that way you can change the books every fortnight and it's FREE!!!

    We visit the library every week, but as we live in such a small village, there is VERY limited choice.

    It is quite a drive to the nearest big library, so might try that every now and then.

    Jeremy strong books. Old fashioned but my daughter (5) loves Enid blyton enchanted wood series. Flat Stanley is always a favourite at school as is lighthouse keepers lunch. Good luck. Wonderwise series are nonfiction and really good.

    Re the library, is yours linked with the main one? Our library we can order books which they then get in from the linked library free of charge. We can do this still the library or online.

    Sword in the Stone is brilliant - I read it to my sons when they were five and six years old, they loved it.

    Get some recommendations from Amazon, then see if your library does free ereader downloads. Lots do these days.
