Re: S/O When did you start reading "real" books to your kids?

Probably 4-ish for DS, younger for DD, but that's because she's been along for the ride a lot... more of the Frog & Toad variety at that age. We *just* started Harry Potter and most nights one of us reads separately to DD when it's a HP night, she's not interested. DS is very, very sensitive though - he loves Captain Underpants (I do NOT) but struggles with anything sad. He read Charlie & the Chocolate Factory but needed a lot of emotional support to get through the first couple chapters.

At 4, DD has just started asking for "small" books (ie not picture books) - but she's really most thrilled with Fancy Nancy, Pinkilicious, etc.
