- RockerMom @ The Linton Academy highlights a couple of the latest read-alouds she has shared with her son: The Tales of Beedle the Bard and The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System.
- Janet @ Across the Page reviews three excellent titles to use when learning about trees.
- In this week’s post, Alice @ Supratentorial adds even more zoo book picks to the list she started last week. Last week’s post inadvertently got left off my Links post last week, so be sure to go back to see Alice’s entire list!
- Susan @ learning ALL the time read and reviewed one of my favorite books so far this year: The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic. If you haven’t read this book yet, click over to read Susan’s review for one more reason why you should pick this one up!
- Maggy @ Red Ted Art’s Blog reviews a book about Vincent van Gogh: Camille and the Sunflowers, and she includes a go-along art activity. I’m making mental notes of good picture books about artists for study later this year, and this one looks like a good one!
- Mary @ Homegrown Learners is sharing two great chapter books with her children: A Wrinkle in Time (!!!) and a new-to-me title by Mary Ann Hoberman–Strawberry Hill.
- Mouseprints @ Thick and Thin Things shares a fabulous post entitled “Picture Books for Doll Lovers.” We’ve read a few of these at the House of Hope, but I see quite a few more that I’d love to share with my girls some day soon!
Don’t miss the additional suggestions for chapter book read-alouds for young children in the comments on yesterday’s post! Also, I reviewed a fun, new Chris Van Allsburg title this week, and if you’re looking for some Independence Day reads or an art activity, check out this post from the Hope Is the Word archives.
Have a great weekend!
