Family Read Aloud

We’re currently reading One Crazy Summer for the 2021 Global Children’s Book Club. We’re almost done and we’re LOVING it. We read Lalani of the Distant Sea last month, which was also really enjoyable!



The Self-Driven Child

This has been on my list for a while, and I’m glad to finally listen to it. There are definitely some problematic elements in terms of stereotyping and not recognizing diverse groups and experiences. Still, I’m learning from it and have already gotten some actionable tips.

10 Year Old Reading List for February

My oldest loves fantasy fiction the most and blows through those like crazy. Some favorites are Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Fablehaven, and Redwall.

This month, he’s been reading the Artemis Fowl books. A neighbor was giving them away and asked if we wanted them, so I figured they were worth trying (I haven’t read them before). The next thing I knew, he’d read the first 4 and was asking if I could download the 5th from the library’s digital collection. He’s almost done with 7 (of 8? I think?) now and is loving them all.

For homeschool, he’s also read Number the Stars and Who Was Albert Einstein? this month, and is partway through Tuck Everlasting.


8 Year Old Reading List for February

My older daughter tends to also love fantasy. This month, she’s been re-reading various parts of the first 3 Percy Jackson books, and has started on The Trials of Apollo and Fablehaven book 5.

She also read Number the Stars after her brother finished with it. For homeschool, she read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and The BFG, and just finished The Mystery of Meerkat Hill.


6 Year Old Reading List for February

My 6 year old is just getting into more independent reading. I still sit with him for some of the more complex reading, but he’s getting more fluent, which is fun for both of us.

This month, he finished Cam Jansen, then moved onto Nate the Great. He’s re-reading a Mercy Watson book now, and also started The Princess in Black.


Toddler & Baby

We’re reading lots of picture books with the 3 and 1 year olds, although I’m thinking it’s time to start a short chapter book just for my 3 year old now! Some current favorites: Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea, Dragons Love Tacos, and Dear Zoo.
