We have been stumped with finding good read-a-louds. I know they are out there, so I checked out The New York Times Parent's Guide to the Best Books for Children by Eden R. Lipson. I placed many recommended books on hold and I think we are on to Rootabaga Stories by Carl Sandburg next. We just finished The Courage of Sarah Noble which they liked. Any recs are welcomed. They seem to love books like James and the Giant Peach and Willie Wonka, etc.
