Happy January, Everyone!!
Wow, January is almost over. How did that happen?
I’m excited to share what we’ve been reading and what we will be reading this month. We got started a little late for school after the break. January has been a bit of a blur, so we’ve just started to read some of these books. Some of them we will be reading this next week.
This is what I’m reading to Lulu:
Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
We are on to the next book in the series. What child (especially girls) don’t love these books? The great thing is, I love reading them to her just as much as she loves hearing them.
This is what I’m reading:
The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst
I read this book last year after I spied it at the library. I bought it earlier this month and am reading through it again. This time more purposefully and like a Bible Study. I’ll probably be reading through this over the next few months.
Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson
This is our book club’s next book. I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t even cracked the book open yet! I will start it soon, seeing as our next meeting is just around the corner.
This is what I’m reading aloud to both kids:
Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner
Because it’s winter and Little H is starting the letter S next week, I’m reading this to the kids. I discovered this book a few years ago when I was still in the classroom and just fell in love with this creative book. What do snowmen do while we’re all sleeping at night???
Groundhog Day by Gail Gibbons
I found this book at the library this past week. Groundhog Day is just a little over a week away and so I’ll be curling up on the couch with my kiddos soon and reading this to them.
What I’m reading to Boo Boo:
The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli
We just finished up the letter W with Boo this last week. We read a few different “W” books; but this one was his favorite. When the kid that I can barely get to sit still for 2 shakes, repeatedly asks us to read this book to him, (and he sits still for multiple readings) I know I have a winner. It’s cute and simple and really catches the little one’s attention.
