Dd is nearly 9 and an avid reader. She reads a lot herself but still likes me to read to her and I like it too.

Does anyone have any good suggestions for books to read aloud to her? We've just finished reading Ballet Shoes together which was lovely, I know there are others, Tennis Shoes, Theatre Shoes etc. She's read all the Harry Potter books.

Any suggestions please?

Try Clever Tykes books, Walk-it Willow especially.
