starting out with chapter books

We are beginning with chapter books. The children are sort of interested, but it is a big leap, having books with little or no pictures. Anjali has been wanting to read chapter books for a while now - glossy books with lots of words and few brightly colored pictures - Aesop fables, fairy tales, and when we start on these, Sophia comes in with her little dora books - Sophia is not very interested in keeping the same page unless it involves an elephant, preferably getting bitten in the bottom by a crocodile.

I borrowed "Two times the fun" by beverley cleary. I like it. and i think Anjali identifies with the characters, although she has too imagine them a lot.
