Family Book Picks – May

Leave a comment

Here are few of the books we enjoyed this month.

Chasitie (age 3)The Bear Went Over the Mountain as told and illustrated by Iza Trapani  The traditional rhyme has been expanded to encompass all the senses; lots of fun!

Naomi (age 3)If You Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Numeroff  Follows the adventures of a little girl and the pig with whom she shares her breakfast.

Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert   Another favorite with both girls this month; colorfully illustrates fruits and vegetables for each letter of the alphabet.

Andrew (age 6)Flight by Robert Burleigh  The exciting story of Charles Lindbergh’s trans-Atlantic flight in 1927.

Jonathan (age 9) – Young Marines Basic Guidebook  Says he didn’t read anything else interesting this month!  Young Marines is a program for youth ages 8-18; their core values are leadership, discipline and teamwork.

Samuel (age 9)The Dangerous Canoe Race by Lee Roddy  A humorous mystery about “what’s in the box and “are we going to win?”” (Samuel’s words)

Abi (mom)What It Is Is Beautiful by Sarah Dunning Park  A small book of “honest poems for mothers of small children.”  I tried to pick a favorite but couldn’t decide; they all make me cry ’cause they express the reality so well.

Harrison (dad) – He didn’t have time to read this month–he was too busy working on the Dragon Legends exhibit for Answeris in Genesis!  Scroll down near the bottom of this article and you’ll find him adding lights to the banners.

Jonathan has some poison ivy here, but it looks about 50 times better than it did earlier this week!
