Another week, another reading log!
Before we get into the details of our latest reads, let's chat about our favorites from last week. Sadly, no one was able to guess the favorites of both my son and I. For those wondering what the favorites were, let's take a look . . .
Franklin's Neighborhood by Paulette Bourgeois
My personal favorite book from the last Reading Log Roundup was Franklin's Neighborhood. Franklin and his classmates are given an assignment by his teacher to come up with what they like the best about their neighborhood. Franklin tries to find the one thing, but has a difficult time trying to narrow it down to the best. His final project was super sweet and summed up the best of the neighborhood in such a beautiful way!
The Gas We Pass: The Story of Farts by Shinta Cho
From beauty in Franklin's message, we then move to the other end of the spectrum with my son's favorite read! Need I say more when we are talking about a book of farts?!? No really . . . it's an informative book that talks about where farts come from and how they differ based upon the foods we (and other animals!) eat. It truly is a great book for little boys!!
Here's a peak into what my son and I read this past week:
I Like Bugs! by Margaret Wise Brown
Green Wilma by Tedd Arnold
Monster Mess by Margery Cuyler
The Gingerbread Kid Goes To School by Joan Holub
On A Pirate Ship is a book that we own and my kids love to read aloud! I've reviewed it briefly before in a past Literary Locals post (see link above), but in short, it is a fun book to read and imagine with all the action words! The other book that was a favorite was I Like Bugs! Brown has a great talent for creating a rhyme and rhythm that is a blast to read aloud . . . even when it is about big, fact, icky bugs!!
What are you reading with your kid(s) this week?
