And reading is truly magic!
Mr. Witt ( The best elementary school principal ever!)
Sloan over at Lucky as a LadyBug shared this post last week. She asked about our favorite books. I knew I wanted to answer in a post of my own. Thanks Sloan for the inspiration.
These are some of our favorite Pop-Ups. I must have read them all 300 times!
We love Franklin and Clifford books. This crate is full of them.
P.D. Eastman is one of our favorite authors.I love these early readers.
This was one of my favorites as a child.
We have this great collection of Arthur books that we have read over and over again as well.
Jonathan started reading these Wayside School books in the third grade....
and this is when his independent reading really took off!
Louis Sachar and Andrew Clements are our favorite chapter book authors right now.
Of course, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Stink are popular in our house too!
And our toddler Bibes are just about worn out!
I wish I could say my children just love to read. The truth is they don't.
They do it because they are required to read 20 - 30 min. each night.
Every now and then, the mood will strike them and they'll read a little longer because they are into a good series or they want to see what happens next.
I still enjoy reading to the boys and sometimes Emily will join me in my bed at night...and we'll read side by side. For her, it is usually a fashion magazine.
Loving that we end our days together with a book!
Loving that we have so many choices,
even though we still read the same ones over and over again!
