What My Child is Reading

One of J's favorite activities is reading books and I absolutely love cuddling him on my lap and reading. I like to link up to What My Child Is Reading blog link-up. Not only is it a great way to record the wonderful books we've read, but I've found so many new good book ideas by visiting each week. Click on the button below to see what others have been reading!

Bright Stanley by Matt Buckingham
I recently discovered a series of books called Tiger Tales and they are really fun. I love the bright and colorful pictures and the whimsical stories with a variety of adventures and different animals and characters. The stories in the "Under the Sea" series are so fun, like this one. Stanley one of the brightest fish in the ocean, yet one day he loses his school. The story follows him on a journey to reunite with his bright fish friends.

Diego's Arctic Rescue by Erica David
My son enjoys Diego's adventures and I like what he learns about the environment and caring for the animals in it. In this book, a mother polar bear gets separated from her cubs due to the ice melting. Diego finds a way with the help of a Beluga whale, his friend Dora and others to rescue the baby polar bears and return them to their mother.

M is for Monster by Mike Wazowski
My son watched Monsters Inc for the first time recently and was thrilled when we found a book from the movie. This one is an alphabet book written by one of the characters. I watched several times when my son picked it up on his own and was reading through the alphabet on his own.

Nova the Robot Builds a Friend by David Kirk
J has been getting into robots lately and the Nova books are really fun. This book is all about shapes. On each page, he has to identify which shape Nova is looking for and then Nova adds it to his robot. Nova ends up making a dog robot when all the shapes are put together.

Planets Around the Sun by Seymour Simon
I'm teaching J about the planets and he is fascinated by them! After a little search at the library, I found this great book. A very simple look at the basics about the planets in our solar system. We love the pictures too.

This is the Day by Nancy White Carlstrom
This is a ZonderKids book based on Psalm 118:24 (This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.) Each day of the week in the book brings another realm of God's creation to be thankful for. The pictures encourage an appreciation of nature and all that God has made and also teaches the days of the week.

Tiberius and the Friendly Dragon by Keith Harvey
This is the second Tiberius book we have come across now. Tiberius is a cute little mouse who has adventures with a friendly red dragon. In this adventure, the people in town are afraid of a scary red monster living on the edge of town. The only one who volunteers to investigate is Tiberius the mouse. What he ends up finding instead of a scary monster is a new friend. It teaches such a lovely message about the value of friendship and reaching out to those who are lonely.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Hedgehog by David Kirk
This is another cute robot book with Nova the robot. In this book, he's created a little hedgehog robot but he has long spikes that have electric current. All the hedgehog wants to do is cuddle with the other robots, but each time he tries he gives them a big shock! Nova has to find a way to help and after re-wiring him, he's finally able to cuddle up to his friends.

I am going to have to look for This Is The Day. I believe we would truly enjoy this book.

Ooo, the planets and tiger tales sounds so fun! I want to get some new books for our son. We are ready for more in depth stories. Right now we just started a winnie the pooh story (the old one), we're only on chapter 2, so I know it's too soon to judge, but so far I'm not into it. It's written kind of weird to me.

Nova the Robot sounds like something my daughter would enjoy. Thanks for sharing so many wonderful books with WMCIR!
