Quite awhile ago I read a Soulemama post about having seasonal books arranged in a basket. I store our books between seasons so it is a fun surprise and like finding a treasure when it's time to get them out again.
When I gathered the summer books I realized that our pile is very skimpy.
Here's the titles we have so far:
- Graduation Day Is Here by Grace Maccarone
- The 10 Best Things About My Dad by Christine Loomis
- My Daddy and Me by Amy Sklansky
- America the Beautiful
Please leave some recommendations in the comments. I'd love to pump up our summer reading.
We are going to the library today and I'm armed with a list I made from some of my fave blogger's lists. And, I hadn't thought of this before, I'll be taking along the Sonlight catalog I got to look for some titles from their lists for #2 and #1.
#2 is really starting to take off in his reading and I'm hoping to use the summer months to get him to a little more independent stage. If anyone has grade-school aged kids Barnes & Noble is offering a free book for their summer reading program. #1 is going to work on that, she's already finished a Nancy Drew book (I haven't even read any of these) and just started The Boxcar Children last night (be still my heart, I loved that book when I was her age)!
