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!

  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!

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 …
