Even though it might be time for kiddeos to be putting away their school books and learning might be far from one’s mind, it still doesn’t mean that you remove reading from your routine.
Here are a few of our selections for the first month of summer reading.
This really funny book is about two chopsticks who are inserparable until one day the one has a break. This results in the one needing to rest so it can get better and be useable again.
While the one chopstick is resting the other one goes on adventures and learns that sometimes it is OK to be on your own.
Full of wonderful puns and kitchen humor, this book is a fun read for both kids and adults.
Because our little Mousekatot is going to be taking some dance classes this summer, I wanted to introduce her to the art of dance through a fun book.
The Angelina series has been around for awhile, and has even spawned a series that is currently available on Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant video.
The series involves a sweet little mouse named Angelina that takes ballet lessons and the different mice that dance with her and the various life lessons they learn.
I high recommend this book as well as any others in the series.
This is our second round for “Oh No, Little Dragon.” Lily absolutely loves the story about this little dragon whose spark goes out when he swallows water during a bath. While he tries everything to get it back it comes from a very sweet source.
Mo Willems is one of our favorite authors. (We are obsessed with the “Elephant and Piggie” series.) When I saw this at the library I had to pick it up.
This rhyming tale is about little Nanette who gets a very important job of bringing home a baguette for her mom. When the temptation of the tasty baguette gets to be too much what will Nanette do?
Peppa Pig and her family go camping in this book.
Not only do they have the most magical camper that also turns into a boat, but they also spend time sleeping under the stars and doing all sorts of other fun camping activates.
Since we just went camping a few weeks ago, Lily has been very interested in the subject.
I am all about books that help little girls learn about their full potential.
This is one of those books. It talks about a young Ada that is different because she wants to learn more about why things are the way they are, which can sometimes be a challenge to her parents.
In the end everyone figures out how to embrace their own true self.
Recently, we had checked out “Carnival of the Animals” from our local library.
It came with a CD that Lily loved to listen to while figuring out which animals were represented by which instrument.
Because she liked it we bought her a copy of that book as well as two other ones that have CDs with them.
I like to pretend that I am going to read a book. So this time I really wanted to read “And Then There Were None.” So far, so good.
Do you have any books that you like to read during the summer months. Leave a comment below.
