We have been reading a lot this summer. Besides it being a part of our nightly rituals, our library has an amazing summer reading program! Here are some of our favorites:
Peter & the.... by Dave Barry
We have enjoyed both Peter & the Starcatchers and Peter & the Shadow Thieves. We have listened to both on tape. Which by the way are read by the talented Jim Dale.
Henry Huggins by Beverly Cleary
Seeing the trailers for the new Beezus & Ramona movie reminded me of how wonderful these books are and it is now time to share them with G.
Multiplying menace : the revenge of Rumpelstiltskin by Pam Calvert
Rumpelstilskin is back and wants the little boy he lost out on the first time. A fun math story.
William the Curious : Knight of the Water Lilies written and illustrated by Charles Santore
Gorgeous book with a great message.
Little Brute Family by Russell Hoban
Good old fashion sweetness.
The Shakespeare Stealer by Gary Blackwood
I am reading this for myself. I thought we might use it when we study Shakespeare. I am really enjoying it. It is the first of a set of 3.
