To yourself


In bed
On the beach
On the toilet
At the library
On a plane
On the couch
On the go

By sunlight


The end

Here are some books we’ve loved lately. 

fireboatThe gentlest story about September 11th.

dogRequired reading for my oldest. She still talks about it.

secret-schoolAfter Something Upstairs proved too creepy, this one was a hit.

The Harry Potter series, Isle of the Lost series, and a few Rick Riordan books have made the rounds as well lately. I could write a dozen posts or more on the books we read. I remember the days of stacking picture books onto my lap before bed. Now it’s hard to keep up with all they read. Luckily, they still let me read to them. What books have your kids loved recently?

  1. These are such great choices! Raina Telegemeier’s books are really popular at my library and I loved Jennifer Nielsen, too. And A Wrinkle in Time is one of my all-time favorites! I haven’t read Fireboat yet – will have to look it up. If they are into realistic fiction, have you read One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia? I read it and the second book, P.S. Be Eleven over the summer and loved them both. And if fantasy is the favorite, try The Magic Thief by Sarah Prineas and Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins.

    1. Rita’s books are on our list to read! Fantasy is either hit or miss. So we will definitely check those titles out.

  2. That’s cool. A blog’s gotta end sometime; I don’t get these people who think they should go on forever. Thanks for this – you worked worked hard and dug deep into the dark recesses of your soul for our amutnmees! love, Slinky
