- Mary @ Homegrown Learners higlights a couple of biographies her children have enjoyed. I love that she took advantage of a book her family received as a gift for some spontaneous artist study!
- Alice @ Supratenorial shares a miscellaneous trio of her children’s favorites.
- Catherine @ A Spirited Mind writes about a couple of beloved children’s classics: James and the Giant Peach and Sarah, Plain and Tall. My girls have only experienced one Dahl story (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and I haven’t been able to convince Lulu to read Sarah, Plain and Tall yet, but I concur that both of these are not-to-be missed. (I was saving Sarah for Lulu to read on her own since it’s a short, relatively easy chapter book. I think she gave it a try, though, and was maybe scared off by the fact that Caleb and Anna’s mother had died.)
- Amanda @ Nursery Rhymes and Fun Times showcases several buggy picture books this week. I was surprised and pleased to see The Icky Bug Alphabet Book on her list; this is one we added to our personal library from way back when my soon-to-be-teenage nephew (who loved bugs!) was a tot. Ah, memories! 🙂
- Jade @ Hey, It’s Jade! shares a couple of titles this week: I’d Be Your Hero and The Complete Book of Farmyard Tales. Check out Jade’s post!
- Bluerose @ Bluerose’s Heart reviews My First Hands-On Bible. Although we have an abundance of Bibles and Bible story books for preschoolers at the House of Hope, this one sounds like one I’d like to add to our collection!
- Carrie @ Reading to Know reviews A Mouse Called Wolf by Dick King-Smith. This one looks like a lot of fun!
- In this inaugural RAT post from Home School Parent there is a hearty recommendation of Dinosaurs before Dark, as well as lots of related educational links. Please join me in welcoming this new blog to RAT!
- Books 4 Learning offers reviews of Nighty Night! and three different versions of the Rapunzel fairytale (including one published just this year!) If you haven’t yet, do check out Books 4 Learning—this blog contains a wealth of good bookish information and teaching strategies!
- Serena @ Casting Pearls recommends several new-to-me titles this week: Raccoon Moon and Lost on a Mountain in Maine, as well as some familiar and well-loved ones.
I have had some problems posting comments on Blogger and Blogspot blogs, so if I haven’t commented on your post, please know that I did try! 🙂
Have a lovely weekend!
