June, week 1

Well, as would seem to be my blogging habit, I am behind.  We have been reading.  And we have been to the library.  But we've also been enjoying our summer!  The first week of June we had some fun books.

Stella's favorite was Katie Meets The Impressionists by James Mayhew.  It was a cute story.  Stella loved it.  I was ready to take it back after the 3rd or maybe 4th read, but we just kept reading it.

My favorite was The Low-Down Laundry Line Blues, Written by C.M. Millen and illustrated by Christine Davenier.  It was a rhyming story, and I loved  the interaction of the characters.  I liked the way the little sister didn't give up, or give in.  fun stuff.

We also borrowed World School Day Adventure , this is a Dora the Explorer book written by Shakira.  It  was cute, for a Dora book.  It was neat to get to learn about the different types of schools that children around the world might attend. A school under a tree in Ethipopia, a school on a bus in India, and a school on a boat in Indonesia (I think).

Harold and The Purple Crayon, by Crockett Johnson was another of my favorites.  I have to admit that I don't remember ever reading this before.  I picked it because it was on every list of great books to read to your ________________ -schooler. Fill in that blank with anything from elementary down!  I didn't know what is was about, and I wondered why it would make so many lists.  I get it now!  I really enjoyed this one too.  I love the imagination.  I love the simple drawings.  I love that the kid makes up the story.  Stella liked it, but didn't love it.  Bruce loved it.

The last book we got was called First to Fly: How Wilbur and Orville Wright Invented the Airplane . It was written by Peter Busby, paintings by David Craig.  I liked this one, but it was way over Stella's head. She did enjoy the pictures, which were excellent.

What did you read last week?
