Weekly Household Reads

Coco (age 9) is our equestrian and enjoyed Riding Freedom by Pam Munoz Ryan this week. She also finished The Pirate and the Princess: Timelight Stone by Mio Chizuru, and The Lost Warriors and Into the Woods both from the Manga Warrior series created by Erin Hunter.

CJ (age 7) is almost finished with Clementine's Letter by Sara Pennypacker. He also read McBroom Tells a Lie by Sid Fleischman and Pokemon's Explore with Ash and Dawn.

JB (age 5) enjoyed Frog Knows Best (which he read entirely by himself) and Dino-Mite, a cute dinosaur pop-up book, both of which he got from the school library.

Sassy (age 3) eagerly chose a perennial favorite in our house, Pajama Time!, for bedtime. Sandra Boynton's books are my favorite for young kids. Not only do they have catchy rhythms, but the illustrations are adorable. We used this one to work on colors this week.

We all enjoyed reading Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett before watching the movie together for our family fun night.  JB and I liked the book better, but Coco and CJ preferred the movie.

We have also been reading and watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I plan to review both the film and the book but opted to do the film first. You can read my review here.

Riding Freedom is one of my favorite books. Like Coco, I picked it during my equestrian phase.

I've never read Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, but Judi Barrett's other book Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing was one of mine and my brother's favorite as children.
