What My Children Are Reading

This week, we have been reading several of the library books that we have out at the moment. I also started reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone to C. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: 10th Anniversary Edition (Harry Potter)I've never read any of the Harry Potter books, but I won this one from Brimful Curiosities a few months ago and decided to start reading it. C expressed interest so I've been reading it aloud to him. We have only read the first few chapters, so we just got to the part when Harry learns that he's a wizard. We're both enjoying it.

Ten Fat TurkeysWe borrowed one of our favorite Thanksgiving books from last year: 10 Fat Turkeys by Tony Johnston. This is such a fun book with ten turkeys on a fence, then one does something silly and ends up falling off, leaving one less. It goes down until there are no more turkeys and no more fence! The kids both like this silly story and I have to say that I enjoy reading it too.

Ladybug Girl at the BeachM has been enjoying Ladybug Girl at the Beach by David Soman and Jacky Davis. This is a new Ladybug Girl book that was published in May. It's a cute one with Lulu and her family going to the beach, where she is very frightened by the ocean. Eventually she decides to be Ladybug Girl and she becomes brave enough to play in the water. I like the message and it's a cute book with a character that M really enjoys.

What have you been reading with your children this week? Hop on over to Mouse Grows Mouse Learns to share!


  1. My youngest two like Ladybug girl almost as much as Fancy Nancy.

  2. I really need to find some Ladybug Girl books, I'm sure Princess would love them.

  3. Oh, my gosh, this is the first Harry Potter you've read? Wow!

    Just a warning, since your son is young - the books get progressively scarier and darker and also deal with Harry and his friends' adolescence in later books.

    So glad you're enjoying reading this wonderful book together.


  4. Both my husband and I are HUGE Harry Potter fans. I can't wait until Anna is older and we can read Harry Potter together. I do agree that the books get very dark very quickly and probably not appropriate for the crowd under 10. I hope C enjoys the first book!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
