Any interest in a thread like this? Is it redundant?
When people ask me for book recommendations for kids, I usually end up recommending a handful we have loved forever. Great books, all. But then I find that I didn't think about more current books we are reading. So a regular thread to include books and other reading material as we enjoy them seems to me a good way to get beyond the classics we love.
I am new to this particular forum, so PLEASE let me know if there is another, ongoing thread just like this.
Let me know what your family is reading together, or what the kids are reading on their own. Include any notes about "age appropriateness" if that might be ann issue.
My girls are 6.5 and 4.5. Here are some picture books we have been enjoying:
Usborne's "First Thousand words in Spanish"
"Officer Buckle and Gloria" by Peggy Rathmann
"I'm a Pill Bug" by Yukihisha Tokuda
"My Cat, The Silliest Cat in the World" by Giles Bachelet (the "cat" is an elephant!)
"Monsters Don't Eat Broccoli" by Barbara Jean Hicks
"The Pirate Cruncher" by Jonny Duddle
"Billy and Blaze" stories by C. W. Anderson
"Monster Sleepover" by Scott Beck
DD1 has been enjoying the graphic novel "Perseus and Medusa". It is a bit gory, but the story itself is a bit gory anyhow, and this one isn't much worse than other renditions.
Chapter books? Unfortunately the last year or so there has been much resistance beyond "The Hobbit" Now DD1 has begged me to read LOTR, and we are now at the beginning of The Return of the King. She keeping up with it!
Share some of your favorites, especially the gems hidden amidst all the classics. Please Keep It Positive......
