What My Child is Reading: Aprl 23-30

J is continuing to read the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. This week he finished up Flag of Exile, Honor Among Enemies and In Enemy Hands. Honor Harrington is a captain of a spaceship who wants to defeat the People Republic of Haven. Great Sci-Fi books for teens to adults!

C was excited to find another Wimpy Kid book at the library to borrow, The Ugly Truth, and DEVOURED it in a day. And then she returned to Indian Summer by Ella Gilman Conger - a historical fiction book about a young Iroquois-white girl living in northern Maine - and The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage Carlson. This is a sweet story about a homeless Parisian man who is determined to find a better home for a mother and her children who live under a bridge near the Seine River.

S continues to work on his Hooked on Phonics: Learn to Read readers Sam and the Mitt, Ann's Hat and Pop Fox, and Learning Language Arts Through Literature 3 Big Hats.

For Read Aloud books, I borrowed classical and award-winning literature from the library.

  1. My girls, especially my youngest daughter, love Wimpy Kid books, too.
    I have heard good things about "The Family Under the Bridge"...we actually have a copy on one of our bookshelves. I need to read it!
