2 week check-out

2 week check-out: our library summer reading

Continuing with our library summer reading...

I was thinking as we were finishing up some library reading and listening (audio books), whether I would share something we read even if it was not an instant favorite. I figured I would share them all, as we all have different likes and dislikes, so... here is to hoping that you will find a new (or old) favorite. Peace and love to you.

E gave this classic chapter book 4 thumbs way up (this being his thumbs and his big toes). He loved that she did not put up with people who put her down, that she was so independent, her love of messes, her horse on the porch, the fact that she did not attend school, and all her crazy shenanigans, oh and that she was a "thing finder" ("Just like me!", he said.)

E liked this chapter book, although we all did not like the fact that most of the characters in this book were so judgemental. We agreed that people need not "fit in" to be happy, and that everyone should be treated with respect. However we love Dick King-Smith books, and E gave this 4 thumbs up as well.

A sweet book with a fairy tale feel.

E loved that the bear did not have to follow bicycle etiquette, and that he was not that great on his bike (as he is the same).

E still loves the sweetness in this book, and J delights to see himself in these babies.

For my listening, I continued with the Hamish Macbeth mystery series. This has been one of the best, a very fun small town read. This is book #12.
