1. What a neat format (I found you on Read Aloud Revival FB page). We love books here, think I will use the same format on my blog to better keep track of what we’ve read. Thanks for sharing! Always excited to find new ideas. PEACE!

  2. They all look great! We are reading but not so much blogging going on. I feel for you with the move, I HATE moving although I know it’s often a blessing in a lot of ways. Hope yours goes smoothly.

  3. Bulldozer’s Big Day sounds like it would be a hit at my house too. My 3.5 year old is currently OBSESSED with his next birthday…even though it is still five months away. 🙂

    Our favorite book this month was The Tune is in the Tree by Maud Hart Lovelace: http://homeschooldiscoveries.com/2015/05/25/the-tune-is-in-the-tree-by-maud-hart-lovelace/

    And I wrapped up the rest of our longer read-alouds/audiobooks in a post I just finished tonight: http://homeschooldiscoveries.com/2015/05/31/read-aloud-wrap-up-for-may-2015/

    I read Swiss Family Robinson aloud with my daughter last September. It took a long time, but it felt like a real accomplishment to finish it. We liked it, though I can see how it might be a bit tedious to some readers (lots of descriptions of plants and animals). I also had to constantly work on my “suspension of disbelief” for the wild variety of plants and animals they found all together on one island. It didn’t bother my daughter at all though since she is less familiar with what belongs where in the first place. 😉

  4. Yes WHY would you get rid of the bed you’ve marked on how many times you’ve shared a special memory with your parents!? SNIFF indeed! Yard Sale looks like a very interesting book. (And I also chuckled at your idea that a garage sale would be torturous. My husband feels the same.)

    YAY for The Green Ember!!!!!!!!
