All Star Books - List 2

We are adding to our favorite book list.  You can view the original list here.  The original list includes books we read from preschool to 2nd grade.  The following is a list of some of the books we read during 2nd and 3rd grade.  However, most of them could be read any time prior to 3rd grade, particularly the picture books.  We read many picture books during our Galloping the Globe study.  You may also notice Five in a Row and Sonlight titles.  I've only listed the "great books" and I've highlighted our absolute favorites....
