What we are reading Monday

Thanks to the Picture Book reading challenge from Child Led Chaos, we are keeping track of the books that we are reading this year.

Screen Shot 2014-02-03 at 8.30.14 AMThis past week added a few different books as I tried grabbing things from the library before the 2 inches of snow closed our town down for 3 days. The standouts from this week were The Pet Dragon, Me on the Map, Just in Time Abraham Lincoln and Old MacDonald Had a Dragon.  I will write more detailed posts later.

Obviously by my post last night I also had some issues with The Giving Tree and Purplicious.

One thing that is comical as I look over what we’ll read in any given week is that we are seriously all over the map with the books that we read. I grabbed 15 new books at the library on Saturday, during a fun Take Your Child to the Library day. We enjoyed a scavenger hunt at our local library and each girl got to pick out a new book to take home.  After enjoying Patricia Polacco’s Abraham Lincoln book I checked out a bunch of her other books. Some have topics that are a bit advanced for J, but after I read them myself I might share them with her (one is about the Holocaust).

It’s fun to keep track of the books my kids read, since I enjoy keeping track of my books as well.

  1. Have you read “Hannah’s Suitcase?” I reviewed it on my blog! Great way to introduce kids to the Holocaust. And, it’s a moving story about the children of Japan searching for information about a the girl who owned the suitcase that arrived at their cultural center. It unites three continentns.

    1. that sounds awesome. I will have to add it to our list!

      1. Sorry, it’s “Hana’s Suitcase.” Here’s the link to my review if you want to preview the book first. There is also a DVD in about the search at the library with the same title.
