What My Children Are Reading This Week


We're out of town but I wanted to be sure to post a few of the books we've been reading this week. I hope you're having a great weekend!

The Lighthouse Children (I Can Read Book 1)I picked up a couple new books by Syd Hoff for C. He's read Danny and the Dinosaur and Sammy the Seal already. This week we picked up The Lighthouse Children and The Horse in Harry's Room. He hasn't read The Horse in Harry's Room yet, but he did read The Lighthouse Children, and he did great with it. This is the story of a couple who lives at a lighthouse. They don't have any children, but the sea gulls visit often and they've named them and treat them like children. When they move after a storm, they miss their sea gull children, but they find a way to see them again. It's a sweet story and a great level for C to read now. He needed help on most pages the first time, but after a second reading, he's now able to read it independently.

Crazy Hair Day Big Book (Candlewick Press Big Book)The other book I'll mention is a picture book called Crazy Hair Day by Barney Saltzberg. This is a cute story about a boy who gets all ready for Crazy Hair day at school, only to find that today is picture day ~ Crazy Hair day is next week! So Stanley hides in the restroom for most of the day trying to avoid the embarrassment of having crazy hair on picture day. His friend tries to help and eventually convinces him to join in the picture, where Stanley gets a big surprise.

That's it for this week since I am not home so I can't go through the rest of the books we have! What have you been reading with your children this week? Join the blog hop!

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
