While, I am on a self imposed library break, as I finish off the books on my bookshelf to clear room for the new child's books, I keep hitting it up for the child. She has really become reading obsessed this year and I'm loving it. We are keep tracking of her books on goodreads and of the books we can remember she's read, she's already completed 69! Of course some of these are super short, but whatever, she's reading every single day and loving it. I also like that she lets me bring home books from the library and she'll give them a shot. She's like me, in the sense that she likes series, so I just keep picking up the next in the series of the books she likes. I am always looking for new series for her, so if you have any suggestions I'm all ears!
Series that she's read or is currently reading and enjoying - The Little House Series, Tales from Maple Ridge, Dear America, Elephant & Piggie, Mercy Watson, The American Girl books, Lola Levine, Blast from the Past, Sophie Mouse, Dog Man, Captain Underpants, and Amelia Bedelia.
Here is what I grabbed for her yesterday.
She also LOVES unicorns. However, she hasn't gotten super into any of the unicorn series I've tried so far, so if you know a good one let me know!
Her interests include history, strong leaders, and anything about Martin Luther King Jr., that she can read. My mom got her the illustrated version from Usborne of Anne of Green Gables and I am hoping that I can entice her with that this summer. I own that whole series, but I think it may still be a bit too hard for her if she attempted it on her own. I realllllly want her to be interested in Harry Potter with me, but when we tried 2 years ago she wasn't a fan, and she claims she doesn't really care. Argh!
What books are you reading from the library? Any series that you loved as a child?
