Right now Camille is in love with all of Arnold Lobel's books. Anyone have suggestions for similar reading material for a newly independent reader? So many of the more modern series are pretty flat or boring. Not that Frog and Toad are the most lively of characters, but they do have some mildly entertaining quirks and escapades. I think we need to pull out some of our favorite Cynthia Rylant reads for her. I remember having similar struggles with finding books at this stage of reading with Noah, but it is certainly exciting to see Camille's astonishment and thrill at being able to "read it all in my head!". Noah is back to studying his well-loved Science Rocks and Kid Concoction books for summer experiment ideas. I am savoring Anthill with all of its Southern flavor, swampy adventures, and crawling critters. We just finished doing a family read aloud of Edward Tulane and are now starting The Mysterious Benedict Society.
Here are a few things on the reading list for this summer, but would love to add to it, so please share your lists, too!
