As a retired teacher I am often asked by parents for book ideas. One of my "go-to" ideas is anything by Hayao Miyazaki. Read the book and then watch the movie for a magical experience that is often lacking in today's media for children. Please note this is a longer book if reading aloud to very young children.

Kid loves it because she's seen the movie. It's 100 pages so a bit too long for a bedtime story for a 4-year old, but you can do it in 'chapters'.
