Reading Roundup #2

The last two weeks around here have been so busy going here or there, or having extra kids, that a lot of our weekly reading time got crowded out a bit.

Several books also got returned to the library before I remembered to take pictures. Oh well. My kids tend to reread so many books anyway that I'll likely get another shot at it in a few weeks or so.

Here is a few I did capture however:


My T Sound Box was a big hit with Kit! It was packed with cute pictures and a ton of t-words. The Tiger with the loose tooth was her favorite. 



This one has beautiful illustrations, I could look at these pictures over and over with the bright colors and sweet expressions. And up until the last few pages the story was good too. But it fell flat in the very end. It honestly felt like the author ran out of room and just wrapped it up as quick as possible instead of reworking it to make Little Raccoon's character grow more smoothly. But, otherwise, it's really cute.




Our second attempt at using an audio book for Kit has been a smashing success!  She was super excited about it, she recognized what the dark blue zipper bag meant immediately. And she happily plopped down by the cd player, and listened to the book four times, turning the pages at her own pace, completely absorbed in the pictures.  Meanwhile, I was able to help Grace with her math lesson. Just took a better plan to make these a great tool for us!

Paddington got returned to the library by accident,  but that's okay, we'll check it out again later. We actually have had a change of plans for our read aloud, and I'm waiting for our new book to come back to the library. I'll let you know what it is soon, and we are going to have several surprises coming up in connection with it!

Hope you had a happy reading week as well!

  2. The illustrations in Little Raccoon are gorgeous, they almost have a vintage feel. I wonder when it was published.

    1. Yes, they captured me right away. So so beautiful. I didn't look to see when it was published, and we took it back to the library already. I'm curious now, too. :) Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Audio books really are fantastic for all ages, but I think they can be lifesavers for little ones! Thank you so much for coming by and sharing!
