  2. Love your list!
    When our kids were little we used to read to them from the Chronicles of Narnia every Sunday evening. I would bring out my tea set and we would have tea and popcorn. They are all grown up now but still remember doing it.
    PS. They are also excellent choices for adults! :-)
