Chapter books to read to a 4 year old?

My niece is turning four this weekend and I'd like to get her some chapter books that her parents can read to her. Anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. What about some others? Thanks mamas!

My 4 year olds favorite chapter books are the Rainbow Magic Fairies - the jewel fairy series is her absolute favorite. But she's a huge fan of fairy anything so these books are right up her alley.

my Ds loves the magictreehouse series
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/re...&sprefix=magic

they are really cute. The charcters are a boy and girlwhich is great b/c its not a girly book or a boyish book kwim, anyone can relate. each book in the series has them go on a different adventure, in each place they discover something else, and there is alot of good historical facts woven in its neat.

They also have the books on cd which my ds loved to listen to as he falls asleep

When I was little I loved the Junie B Jones books, there is a lot of them to choose from. My favorite was Junie B. Jones and a Little Monkey Business, is about when her little brother is born

What about that new mouse movie "Despereaux" or however you spell it. I saw Kate (Jon &Kate) reading it to her kids, I think they are 4 ish.

Re: Chapter books to read to a 4 year old?

The entire Oz series by L. Frank Baum is wonderful and classic. Lots of very kid-friendly humor (like puns). We actually read them to our infant son right now: he loves the rhythm of being read to.

A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh books (2 of them) are also wonderful.

I also remember reading the "Betsy-Tacy" books as a kid but I forget the name of the author.
