Next Top Reads: Journey to 1,000 Books before Kindergarten

April 20, 2017

 

 

As our reading journey continues we had some fun plucking books off the top of the cabinets at the library which had been previous pulled out to be highlighted by the librarians. There were lots of themes around spring, bunnies, and warm weather.

 

We also were blessed to have a visit from my youngest sister who is about to start her elementary teaching career in Houston Texas. Lauren has always loved reading and being around kids she has a good read on the pulse of what series or authors are popular right now. Needless to say we were grateful for the books she pulled and I appreciated her shared insight as to the importance of reading books about the enjoyment of reading as well as yourself reading in front of them so they see it is something you liked to do too.

 

Some of our favorite books surprised me as I would not have necessarily thought we would enjoy them so much - as they say - don't judge a book by its cover! *Below in relative order of most favorite to least most favorite HAHA
