I received some great feedback on this new feature last week and have decided to continue with it for a while! I may make changes as I go, but it will be fun to document a portion of the books that I read with my son. For those who are new to this feature, Reading Log Roundup is a where I share the books that my son records for his Kindergarten reading log. It is not a complete list of books that we read throughout the week by far, but it is a glimpse into our story world.
Honey . . . Honey . . . Lion! by Jan Brett
Ernie and Bert's New Kitten by Deborah Hautzig
Ahoy, Pirate Pete by Nick Sharratt
Too Close Friends by Shen Roddie & Sallie Ann Lambert
Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? by Audrey Vernick
(& illustrated by Presenting Lenore's husband, Daniel Jennewein)
This week, I decided to ask my son which of these books listed was his favorite. His answer . . . Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? by Audrey Vernick!!!! Why did he choose this one . . . . "because the buffalo didn't know how to cut with scissors, but he learned how!"
As for my favorite, I have to say that I actually have two this week . . . the same as my son, Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? by Audrey Vernick because it addresses the anxieties and fears that new students deal with when heading to school, including my very own son! My other favorite is Ahoy, Pirate Pete by Nick Sharratt because it is like Choose Your Own Adventure books, but for the younger crowd. The reader gets to choose how the story goes and you never know if you will see a giraffe in the water or find a crocodile in a treasure chest!
What books have you read with your child(ren) this week?
