Weekly Household Reads

The Husband finished his re-read of The Shadow Rising and is now re-reading The Fires of Heaven (WoT #5) by Robert Jordan. I'm not a big re-reader so this quest of his truly boggles my mind.

Coco (age 9) read Calamity Jack by the Hale trio this week. (Look for my review this coming week too!) She is in the middle of The Rising Storm (Warriors #4) by Erin Hunter. I learned this week that Erin Hunter is actually a pseudonym of a group of authors.  The Rising Storm is penned by Kate Cary. Coco also enjoyed the graphic novel Monkey Wrench Blues (Nancy Drew #11).

CJ (age 7) read Zathura by Chris Van Allsburg. He also read and Knights of the Lunch Table by Frank Cammuso and Bakugan's A Feud Between Friends.

JB (age 5) picked up Dragon Egg by Mallory Loehr at the library and read it to me. Together, we read Dinosaur Time by Peggy Parish. At the back of the book there is a page that explains the advances scientists have made in the study of dinosaurs since the book was first published in 1974. Very interesting!

Sassy (age 3) enjoyed Are You Ready to Play Outside? by Mo Willems. This Elephant and Piggie book won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for 2009. We also read Five Little Penguins Slipping on the Ice by Steve Metzger.

My husband and I took turns reading Calamity Jack last night. I also need to post my review.

The Fires of Heaven is one of my favourite in the series. I'm currently reading Crown of Swords. Re-reading the whole series is a amazing feat. Kudos to him!
