I thought it would be fun at the end of each month to make a quick list of current favorite books.  Some are treasures unearthed form our own shelves; others are new library finds

Chasitie (age 3) – Lucky Ducklings by Eva Moore. Charming illustrations in a fun, true story about the near demise of a family of ducklings.

Naomi (age 3) – Who Put the Cookies in the Cookie Jar by George Shannon.  Simple text and colorful illustrations show how much work really goes into eating a cookie.

Andrew (almost 6) – Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne.  Even the big boys haven’t been able to stay away when I’ve read these stories of imagination and adventure out loud.

Jonathan (age 9) – Salamandastron by Brian Jacques.  This is the 5th book in the Redwall series–full of beautiful scenery, colorful characters and valor.  Considering there are more than 20 in the series, I’m thankful our local library is well stocked!

Samuel (age 9) – North Or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson.  This is the 2nd book in the Wingfeather series–intriguing, adventurous and suspenseful; full of honor and integrity.

Abi (Mom) – Tuttle’s Red Barn by Richard Michelson.  Wonderful narrative of the Tuttle family and how they’ve kept their farm in Dover, New Hampshire working through 12 generations.  As a farm girl born in Dover, I was delighted to find  this book.  It’s not just New Hampshire history; it’s American history.  Mary Azarian’s woodcut illustrations complement the story beautifully.

Harrison (Dad) – Since Samuel already picked North Or Be Eaten . . . How To Argue Like Jesus by Joe Carter and John Coleman.  The authors do a good job of explaining  different types of argument and illustrating how Jesus employs these methods to convey truth to His audience.
