Books Books Books

Who doesn't love books? There have been a few posts where I mentioned a book that you might like to read with your littles, like this one, or this one. As I have said more than once, I like The Magic Tree House Books because they are very informative and fun with facts worked right into the adventures, but I get that not everybody has kids that are interested in those stories, or maybe they are just too long and you want to be able to finish the story in one night, not spread it out over several nights. There are lots of other books that I read with my littles that are relevant to what we are learning, as well. Some are about special occasions, like Dia de los Muertos and The Winter Solstice, some are fictional stories that take place in other countries, some are just general books about diversity among cultures. After linking to a few in my actual posts, I decided that it was high time for me to create a book list for my blog, a place where you can check out the books all in one place. So that is what I've done. I will be adding to this list over time as we discover more. Check it out on the right hand side of the page. 

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them if you have? Also, I'd love to hear suggestions of relevant books from you if you have any.

  1. Cool. I was wondering if you read books to go along with your travels. We're reading lots of holiday books now, and then back to the Harry Potter series--two more books and then we can branch out again (if I still have a voice left, that is)! We'll try out some Magic Treehouse...I think we have a couple on the shelf.

  2. Oh Good! I'm eager to hear what you think of The Magic Tree House Books. I try to read books that are supportive of our "freestyle learning", we don't always have a good one, but we have found a few!
