What We Are Reading This Month:: February

book club

I love God, my family, my friends and yes…. books. Let’s see what books we are loving and reading this month.

Little H:

One of our themes this month in Pre-K was dinosaurs and I found some really good books at the library.

This book compares the size of dinosaurs to animals and objects kids can relate to in our world today. Loved this book.

Lulu:

We are doing our first biography book report this month and Miss Lulu chose to do it on Amelia Earhart.

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.

Cover 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:

Leif the Lucky, Columbus, Pocahontas, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and (We haven’t read this one yet; but will) Buffalo Bill.

Both:

Yes, we’ve been reading a lot of  Valentine Books this month. I’ve already posted my list of Valentine Books here.

My three faves this year (that I tend to read every  year) were Snowy Valentine, The Valentine Bears and The Biggest Kiss. (Actually The Biggest Kiss is a recent favorite.)

Jen:

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.

Happy Reading!!
