We have been reading up a storm this summer! I missed May and June, and I don’t want to list every book that we have read together, that would be overload, so I am just going to share a few of our favorites from July, as well as the few we read together as part of Paris in July. I got the kiddo in on the action! Lol.
First up, our Paris/France reads!
Kitty Kat Kitty Kat Where Have you Been was such a fun look at all the places to visit in Paris – and even included a page on the Tour de France! That was a fun one to read together, since Wyatt knows that we are watching the Tour since it is on everyday for a while. Lol.
The Cat Who Walked Across France – This book was so good, but it was also so sad! 😦 I did love the ending though.
Babar’s Guide to Paris – Another “travel guide” for kids to Paris, but this one beloved character Babar and family introduced not just to places, but the lifestyle and culture – of course, in a kid friendly way. I loved it.
And finally, Madeline. What can I say about this classic that I read when I was a child? Just such a great little book.
And now for our favorites so far for July!
We read Imogene’s Antlers and Deer Dancer the same day that we made Wyatt’s own antler crown. They were both fantastic stories and Wyatt loved having his own antlers after seeing the book character’s antlers. Lol. Wyatt absolutely love Little Blue Truck – I read it so many times to him. We are going to have to read the rest! We also read Summertime in the Big Woods, which was a bit long for him so we read it in chunks at lunch time. I loved this one because Little House was my favorite book series as a kid, and I like introducing it this way to Wyatt before we get into the big chapter books. Wait Till the Moon is Full is another long one, but Wyatt didn’t seem to mind as much, but he loves the moon and night sky. And then finally The Things that I Love About Trees was another good one as we spend a lot of time lately under our own tree.
Any recommendations or favorite picture books? I love to find new ones!
