It's been a while since I shared our favorite books of the week. We've been reading all along, but many of the books we've been reading are ones I've highlighted before.
This week, M has been wanting to read a few of the Doreen Cronin books. We have Dooby Dooby Moo, which we got from Chick Fil-A a long time ago. This is definitely the kids' favorite. It's about the farm animals entering a talent contest to try to win a trampoline. We also have Duck for President, which I think is cute. It's all about Duck wanting to be in charge, first of the farm and eventually of the country. Many of the jokes go over the kids' heads though. We picked up Thump, Quack, Moo: A Whacky Adventure from the library this week. This is a cute one about the farmer making a corn maze, and Duck making his own little changes to the design.
C has been doing a lot of independent reading this week. He read Amazing Snakes by Sarah L. Thomson yesterday morning before school. He said it was good, and he shared some of the things he learned, such as the fact that snakes can open their mouths wide enough to eat animals that are bigger than their heads. Such a lovely image, isn't it?
He also sat up until 9:45 the other night reading Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space by Dav Pilkey. I don't know much about this story. I suppose I should be reading all of them before letting him read them, but I haven't. I do know the premise is that some aliens land on the school and when the cafeteria ladies are fired (I believe), the aliens disguise themselves and take over as the new cafeteria ladies. I'm not sure what happens after that, but C seemed to enjoy it enough to stay up way past his bedtime to finish it!
