As you can see, these days we're reading lots of poetry and old favorites, catching up on classics we (I) missed, reading a few new books and reading lots of series.
For the kids: Now that my first grader's reading has really taken off, I had to subdivide these into categories.
To read to both kids:
The one you can't see second from the top is The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch. Notice three editions of the same book? Expect to see a post on that sometime soon.
Not pictured: More by I.C. Springman, Days to Celebrate: A Full Year of Poetry, People, Holidays, History, Fascinating Facts and More by Lee Bennett Hopkin.
For the first-grader to read to herself:
The one on top that you can't see is Put Your Eyes Up Here: And Other School Poems by Kalli Dakos.
And one that didn't make it into the photo since it was in use at the time:
Not pictured: More Junie B. Jones books than you can shake a stick at, Ruby Lu, Star of the Show by Lenore Look.
To read to the first grader (possibly):
For the first grader's research project (more on that soon):
Not pictured: Wonder by R.J. Palaccio and A Patent Lie by Paul Goldstein (a legal thriller involving patent law originally checked out by my patent lawyer husband and read by both of us. I think I enjoyed it more!) and Hitty: Her First Hundred Years by Rachel Field.
What do you have checked out from the library?
