Great Reads for the kiddos in your life
We are all always looking for some fabu reads with our kids. As much as I love the classics it is fun to find some new books that are interesting to the kids that you may not have read yet. Here are a few that I have found.
This series from author Katherine Applegate. Follow the adventures of life for first grader Roscoe and his many missteps through school and life. He has great uses for glue and also dealing with a bully. Such a cute series with short chapters and sentences, perfect for your young reader. There are seven books in this series so you will enjoy these happy and poignant stories with your child.
Every year we decide far away places we want to travel to. This past school year we went to Chicago and Atlanta. On the docket for this year is Washington, D.C. and New York City. A great way for us to go different places from Nelson’s bed is the A Dodsworth Books. Written by Tim Egan, these books take Dodsworth and his duck around the world to such places as London, Rome, and Toyko. Focal points of the city are highlighted such as double-decker buses, the Sistine Chapel, and Mount Fuji.
OK … to be fair we haven’t read these books and your about to find out why.
