I love reading! It is my hobby and I hope someday my kids will love reading just as much as I do. I just love If you give.... series from Laura Numeroff. How cute are these books! I love cats, so I am fond of, If You Give A Cat A Cupcake! This cat is all about the cuteness, but watch what you give him, he just might make a mess!
This book for is recommended for ages 3-7. The illustrations on each page are simple and not overwhelming and will help with decoding the words. If your kiddo loves cats and cupcakes, this book is for you!
Are you already familiar with the I you give series? If so let me know which book is your favorite!
It is so important for kids to read at least 20 minutes a day or night. I am so excited to start my book list series on here. I will be talking about the books that my son reads and the books that I read to my son.
So just like the title says, the first book that I love and so does my son is Fox Outfoxed by James Marshall. I really like this book because the words are not too small, so it doesn't seem so overwhelming, but it has short chapters, so it makes my son feel like he is reading a big kid book.
This book is a level 3, transitional reader. It is about Fox and his many adventures. In this particular book your child will read about Fox and a race, Fox reading his favorite comics and just like the title say, Fox being outfoxed!
What books are your kiddos reading? Let me know in the comments.
I just love the Henry and Mudge books. They are so cute and my son just loves them. In the first book, there was a story where Mudge gets lost and my son wanted to read the next chapter to see if Henry finds him. It warms my heart to see my son wanting to read more to find out what happened. There was a time when my son refused to even try to read and now he is more open to the process of reading.
I highly recommend the Henry and Mudge books, because for my son they are just on the border of him being able to read most of the words but still needs a little help from me. They have small chapters and the pictures are great in helping my son decode words that he is having trouble with. He is a visual person and looking at the pictures helps him read the words. It is amazing to see how his learning process is, that is one of the reasons why I chose to have him do school from home.
If you are interested in the Henry and Mudge books, here is a link to the first and second book.
I would love to hear what books your child is reading! Let me know in the comments.
My name is Robin. I am a homeschooling mom of three and I just love to find ways to make learning fun. I am so excited to share my ideas with you. I try to make my ideas as inexpensive as possible. Most of the items I use are things that are around most houses and if you have a printer and ink you are all set. Please feel free to use these ideas in your own learning adventure with your children.
