This is called learning to take turns. If the books are short and you can read two leave them each pick one out if they are longer let them take turns one night the 4yr old the next the 7 yr old. Tell them they need to listen cause your going to ask questions when your done. this will help them prepare for their AR goals in school. But it will take patience but hopefully they will both learn.
