What My Child is Reading (June 19th)


I got in on this meme a little late this past week, but I’m going to go ahead and post again today to get myself on track.  This is a great way to not only keep track of what your children are reading, but also to share with others.  Maybe you’ll get some ideas of great books to share with your kids!

Ashley is still reading Scout, Atticus, and Boo - A Celebration of Fifty Years of To Kill a Mockingbird by Mary Murphey. I noticed that she’s also picked up one of the books from the Katie Parker Production series by Jenny B. Jones.  Jenny is a favorite author of hers and she’s actually read through this series a few times before. Good books, though, are worth re-reading, right?

Gracie just started on The Wizard of Oz.  She’s reading an illustrated classic version that was a hand-me-down from Ashley.  She and I are still working through The Quest for Seven Castles (book 2 in the Terrestria Chronicles series) by Ed Dunlop.  We should finish it this week and start on book 3.

Ian has rediscovered one of my favorite childhood books – Miss Suzy by Miriam Young.  He’s asked me to read it to him the past 2 nights, and last night he said “can you read me this book again tomorrow?”  The book is old and worn, and somebody (we won’t mention any names) colored in it – ugh! – but the story is still there, and it’s still good!

As for me, I’m still working through the same 2 books I listed in my last post.  I should finish them both this week, and will have new books to share about next time. :)

I love the Wizard of Oz. It's such a great series. I read it a lot of times as a kid.

The Terrestria Chronicles Series sounds great. I believe I read the first one to my kids. I need to get the others. Love your site!

I love the Wizard of Oz. One of my favorite movies is "The Dreamer of Oz" about L. Frank Baum. It tells of how he wrote The Wizard of Oz. I love to see what everyone's kids are reading.
