I have a 4 year old girly girl (loves princesses and horses and what not) and was wondering what a good book would be to read to her. I'm talking bigger books that will take a few sit downs to read. We have some time during nap time to waste and thought she would enjoy aan ongoing story instead of the little books.

Oh I think she would love those. I started reading her a Saddle Club book last night (one of my olds ones) and I think it was a bit too much for her. lol Thanks fo rthe suggestion.

My daughter fell in love with the Little House on the Prairie series.  She was 4 1/2 when we started.   Laura is great at descriptive language & there are great charcoal drawings through out.

Little House in the Big Woods & Little House on the Prairie both have long chapters, but the other books have more short chapters.  That would allow us a decent place to pause the story. 

We read all 7 books almost straight through.  As soon as we finished one, it was back to the library to get the next.  Nap & Bedtime, no other books allowed (by her).  I confess, I was enjoying them so much, that I would keep reading ahead after she went to sleep.

Good luck
