What My Children Are Reading


Last week, I shared some of the books we got during our last visit to the library. This week, I wanted to share a few others that we've been enjoying.

A Picture Book of Martin Luther King, Jr. (Picture Book Biography)The first book I'll mention is A Picture Book of Martin Luther King, Jr. by David A. Adler. This is a great book for young kids if you're looking for a way to present MLK, his life and his message. It talks about his childhood experiences with segregation, his early career as a minister and his march on Washington. The author talks briefly of his assassination but it's not too bad for younger kids. I recommend it for early elementary kids. I would say it's around grade 2-3 reading level.

Clouds (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)Another one we've enjoyed is Clouds by Anne Rockwell. This book describes ten different types of clouds and what they mean. I will admit that it's pretty complicated to keep track of all of them, but I like that there are pages that show all of the clouds together we can compare them. M had fun making some clouds based on the book as well. You can see our project on my Just Playin' Around blog.

What Will Fat Cat Sit On?Finally, M really likes What Will Fat Cat Sit On? by Jan Thomas. This is a book full of repetition and simple words, so she can read most of it. And it's very silly. The illustrations are fun as we try to find out if Fat Cat is going to sit on one of the other animals ~ all of whom are quite worried about the possibility of the fat cat sitting on them!

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

Comments

  1. We like silly. I think my 5-year-old would love What Will Fat Cat Sit On?, especially since he really liked Can You Make a Scary Face?

  2. Fat Cat is a fun book. We mostly skipped Mr Luther King holiday - I guess we will do more next year when Anna goes to school. Thanks for joining WMCIR!

  3. I love how you always read seasonally appropriate books with your kids - I used to do the same thing. It's fun!
