What my Child is Reading: April 10-16

J continued reading Animal Farm by George Orwell this week for his Literature Study and for pleasure he read On Basilisk Station by David Weber and the historical photo book New York September 11 by Magnum Photographers. (J greatly enjoys historical books!)

C SO enjoyed our Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne read aloud time that she wanted to reread the book on her own this week and then she started The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling.

S is moving right along in his Hooked on Phonics: Learn to Read books! He read Ann's Hat and Sam and the Mitt. And continued to work on his Bob Books Dot and Mit and LLATL Blue 3 Big Hats. (I'm having difficulties finding VERY early beginning readers for S, so if you have a suggestion please let me know in comments. Thanks!)

For mealtime and on-the-road reading:
And for Bedtime Reading, I read these books to C and S:
 What did your kids read this week? Link up to What My Child is Reading to share with other homeschoolers and to get ideas for other GREAT books!


  1. My 10 year old son loves the Diary of a Wimpy kids series, the Rangers Apprenctice series and the Kingdom Keepers series. The author of Kingdom Keepers is coming to a town about 40 minutes away this week and I'm going to bring him to meet Ridley Pearson to get his signature.

  2. Great books! We listened to Mr. Popper's Penguins on audio book quite a while back, and liked it very much. At least one of my daughters has read it on her own, as well (maybe even more than once!)

  3. My daughter learned to read using Progressive Phonics readers at They are free, and they worked wonderfully for us. We also used some sight readers such as Margaret Hilert books and Usborne Phonic Readers. Thanks for joining WMCIR!

  4. We read Mr Poppers for our last read aloud and it was wonderful! We had a lot of fun with it :)They can't wait for the movie to come out this year...


Thanks for reading! Please share your thoughts in the comment box. We love hearing from our visitors!
