I love God, my family, my friends and yes…. books. Let’s see what books we are loving and reading this month.
One of our themes this month in Pre-K was dinosaurs and I found some really good books at the library.
How Big Were Dinosaurs? by Lita Judge
This book compares the size of dinosaurs to animals and objects kids can relate to in our world today. Loved this book.
Dinosaur Alphabet by David West
Warning: There are some tongue twister names in this book!
100 Things You Should Know About T-Rex by Steve Parker
We are doing our first biography book report this month and Miss Lulu chose to do it on Amelia Earhart.
Who was Amelia Earhart? by Kate Boehm Jerome and Nancy Harrison
These “Who Was” series (or as I like to call them, the Bobble Head series) are great first biography books. At just over 100 pages, they are just long enough and full of information.
Abraham Lincoln by Ingri and Edgar Parin D’Aulaire
These authors write such beautiful history books for children. Their illustrations are absolutely amazing as well. Lily is captivated by these books (H listens in too.) It is such a fun and easy way to teach History to little ones. Here are the other books we’ve read by these same authors:
Yes, we’ve been reading a lot of Valentine Books this month. I’ve already posted my list of Valentine Books here.
The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan Philipp – Sendker
I’m in the middle of this book. This is a love story between two very unlikely characters, one blind and one crippled. The story starts off as a mystery, though. A middle aged lawyer, husband and father to two grown children goes on a business trip, never to return. His daughter, years later, decides to try to find him. What she uncovers is her father’s amazing past and an amazing love story. Very interested to see how it ends.
