I am just so excited about all the books I’m reading about through Read Aloud Thursday!! Thanks so much to everyone who participates and makes this little carnival a success each week. If you’re not participating, won’t you consider sharing your family’s read-alouds each week? Here are the links from this week’s post:
- Annette of Live, Learn, Love has greatly enjoyed The Raggedy Ann Stories with her little girl this week. Since our current chapter book read-aloud here at the House of Hope is Hitty: Her First Hundred Years (and we’re all LOVING it), I’m guessing that Raggedy Ann would also be a winner here. Check out Annette’s review.
- Maggy of Red Ted Art writes about a German version of The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse. Maggy’s post always include great art projects, too, and this one is no exception!
- Stephanie of Simple Things has written a very timely post for the month of February. In her post you’ll find books about the overlooked February holidays: Groundhog Day and Presidents’ Day. Stephanie also highlights a chapter book that is also unfamiliar to me: Mandy by Julie Andrews Edwards. It’s one I’m adding to our TBR list for sure!
- Heather of Books for Breakfast has whetted my appetite (both literally and figuratively!) with her vivid and entertaining review of the book The Blueberry Pie Elf. Click on over and see if it doesn’t make your tummy start rumbling, too!
- The LitLass and LitLad, mother and son team who review books together at their blog, LitLad, highlight a to-be-published book from the Knights’ Tales Series. The Adventures of Sir Gawain the True sounds perfect for our history studies next year, so I’m taking notes.
- Alice of All Things Beautiful reviews two titles about the “Saint” in St. Valentine’s Day. We actually own one of these titles, and I’m eager to dig it out to share with my girls now that I’ve read Alice’s review.
- If you’ve never visited Bookie Woogie, you’ve missed a treat! In this post, Z-Dad and his three kiddos discuss Nancy Shaw’s Raccoon Tune. Of course, there’s always a little more to be enjoyed at Bookie Woogie, and in this entry, in addition to the kids’ accompanying artwork, there is also an interview with the author herself. Check it out!
- Alice of Supratentorial writes about a half dozen books that revolve around the theme of color. Of course, she had me at hello when I saw that Harold and the Purple Crayon was their jumping-off point, but all the rest of her titles are new to me. I’m adding them to my list!
- Debbie of Debbie’s Digest reviews two history titles on her blog: Pilgrim Neighbors and Won by the Sword. I’m always on the lookout for good history titles!
All of these posts are so inspiring, but don’t just stop there. Every one of these blogs is just chock full of bookish goodness. Browse around–you won’t regret it!
One more thing–some of your comments are going into the spam folder on my blog for some reason. I’m not tech-savvy at all, so if I miss one, please forgive me. Email me at hopeistheword at gmail dot com if you comment but I don’t post your link. Thanks! 🙂
