This week the kids continued to work through some of the same series as last week.
M read I Will Surprise My Friend by Mo Willems and did a great job reading just about every word by herself on the first reading. I was very proud. This Piggie and Elephant book is about Piggie and Gerald wanting to surprise each other but they both end up hiding for so long they soon think the other has gone away. It's very funny when they finally discover each other.
C read Polar Bears Past Bedtime and Vacation Under the Volcano in the Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne. I'm so glad he's enjoying these books now. These were books 12 and 13 so we'll be picking up the next few a the library this week so he can continue. I've never read these two, so I'm not sure of the exact stories. But these two take place in the Arctic and in Pompeii.
A new book we read is RRRalph by Lois Ehlert. This is a cute book M picked from the shelf at the library. It's about a dog whose owner insists his dog can talk. The dog answers questions like, "Ralph, what's on that tree?" The answer: "Bark." It's a cute book and M seemed to enjoy it. We always love Lois Ehlert's interesting illustrations as well.
After reading RRRalph, we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, which was also illustrated by Ehlert. This has been a favorite for both kids for a very long time. If you've somehow missed it, it's about the little letters climbing up the coconut tree until the tree can't hold them all and they tumble down. Then the big letters have to come clean them up and make them better. It's one of our favorite books on our shelf.
