  1. Andrew Peterson’s Wingfeather Saga! It’s written at a middle school level, but it works great as a read aloud for the whole family. (I have read it twice by myself, besides reading it with the family and I laughed out loud – and sobbed like a baby! – both times.) It’s in the fantasy genre, like Narnia or Middle Earth, and is a story of hope and loss and redemption and joy… Sooo good! http://wingfeathersaga.com/welcome/
