Hey friends! Happy Friday! Is anyone with me when I say it’s seemed like the longest week ever?!
I’m linking up today with Andrea, Erika and Narci. Instead of sharing my normal list of favorites, I thought I’d take it a different direction and share some favorite books the girls have been reading.
I mentioned a few posts ago we have started family reading time every night in hopes that we all become more intentional readers. Ellie use to love to read, but this year has slipped away from it a bit so in an attempt to get her into it again we decided that every night after we are settled in we will set a timer and all read. It’s a great way for the girls to wind down before bed, and if I’m being honest Brandon and I aren’t the type to pick up a book just to read it, so we are learning to enjoy reading also. We take turns reading to Avery since she isn’t reading yet, she is eager to learn though!
So these are all books Ellie has read (parent approved by us) in the last year or so and has loved! She is in 4th grade for a reference point.
Brandon and Ellie are actually “buddy reading” this series right now and have finished book #2 The Lemonade Crime, and we are about to order the 3rd one. I think there are 5 total and we are happy to have found this series.
Ellie has always been a fan of The Cupcake Diaries and has this 4 in 1 book.
Ellie loves a good dog book and has read all of these. They are wrote by the same guy that wrote A Dogs Purpose. I should tell you, she got A Dogs Purpose at a book fair, but after scanning it Brandon and I quickly decided it wasn’t appropriate in our opinion. All that to say, these passed our screen test and were fine.
Averys book choices currently would be these. We are reading longer stories before bed, but these are the ones she talks about often.
So that’s the girls’ favorite reads. Leave me a comment and let me know if you have any recommendations for a 9 year old or a 5 year old. We are always looking for new books.
Have a great weekend friends!!
