The Lost Episodes (Adventures in Odyssey) - I am really enjoying this set. A lot of the episodes I have listened so far speak to some of the struggles we are having in our house. It's amazing for my kids to hear truth spoken in a way they understand it.
The Purpose Driven Life - My word of the year is Purpose so this seemed like the natural choice to start my year with. I have read this one in the past but I have a strong feeling it will speak new truth to me this time around.
R is my 8 year old daughter. She is amazing and is currently flying through her first series. I couldn't be prouder. Here are a few of the books she is reading right now.
Kylie Jean Books - Once again Kylie Jean makes her way on to the list. I am pretty sure these will live on her library list long term.
Clementine Books - I am so happy to see R enjoying this series. I was starting to wonder if Kylie Jean was going to be our only series.
Desert Animals (Origami Safari) - R spotted this on the way out and decided she wanted to try her hand at origami. Talk about a great fine motor activity!
Jaguars (My First Animal Library) - R LOVES big cats so this book was a natural for her to grab. I love that she is voluntarily in the non-fiction section.
Baby Cats (It's Fun to Learn About Baby Animals)
Tiger (Zoo Animals (Heinemann Hardcover))
Mammals (Facts at Your Fingertips)
Pets: Learn to Draw Step by Step (Beginning Artists)
I Can Draw Polar Animals (I Can Draw Animals!)
C is my 5 year old son. He has a huge love for graphic novels and anything I can read to him.
Spider-Man Family: Itsy-Bitsy Battles (Marvel Adventures Spider-Man)
Pokémon Black and White, Vol. 9 (Pokemon)
Due to a very heavy work load Mike has been unable to read much. He will be back in books next week hopefully.
Read Aloud Time
I try to read a few books each day with the kids aloud. Right now I am focusing on Christmas books. I will let you know how I feel about them in the coming week after we have had a chance to enjoy them.
Chickerella - I did not like this book at all. It was just strange.
Over in the Arctic: Where the Cold Winds Blow
Brothers at Bat: The True Story of an Amazing All-Brother Baseball Team - This was a great book based on a true story.
King Hugo's Huge Ego - This one made us chuckle. It's also a great object lesson about humility.
CookieBot!: A Harry and Horsie Adventure - We read this book at least 8 times. They LOVED this story. I loved reading it with them.
Circus Train - This book was downright adorable.
Mop to the Rescue - We didn't love this book as much.
Best Lowly Worm Book Ever!
A Mountain of Mittens - This book was adorable. We read this book a few times and really got a big laugh out of it.
Bits & Pieces - This was R's favorite read aloud this week. Then again, it's about cats.
What did you pick out?
Have you been at the library this week? I would love to hear what you will be reading. Maybe I can find a few more to add to my list for next week. If I choose one of your books I will make sure to link back to you.
