Reading Roundup- Books We're Enjoying in March

Reading Roundup- Books that we're enjoying in March. Favorite reads from the Cutting Tiny Bites fam.

I love sharing some of our favorite books with you each month with a Reading Roundup post!  Going to the library or bookstore without any recommendations in tow can be hit or miss.  Sometimes you may find something great, but other times you may end up with nothing but duds.  It's always nice to have a few titles in your back pocket that you know someone else has enjoyed!  Here are some of the great books that we've been enjoying in March.

Big Wolf and Little Wolf, part of March Reading Roundup

Big Wolf and Little Wolf by Nadine Brun-Cosme

I go to the library a lot, usually with book on hold that I've selected online waiting for me at the front counter.  I let the girls browse and choose several books on their own while I wait, and normally the books they choose end up being kind of blah, having been pulled randomly off the shelf.  I was SO happy with this choice of Lena's, however!  Big Wolf and Little Wolf  is just a sweet sweet story about friendship that we read a dozen times.  There are two other books in the series, and we've got them on our check-out list for our next library visit!

Ladybug Girl Series, part of March Reading Roundup

Ladybug Girl by David Soman and Jacky Davis

Finding books with positive role models for little girls can be tricky.  I don't want the girls to read about girls who are too focused on the way they look or winning the approval of a boy or their friends.  And I certainly don't like them reading about little girls who are too naughty or disrespectful towards their parents.  Ladybug Girl is perfect.  She's curious, spunky, a good friend, and a good daughter.  Each of the books in the series focuses on a particular character trait that we should work to instill in our children.

National Geographic Kids: Why?, part of March Reading Roundup

National Geographic Kids: Why? (Over 1,111 Answers To Everything) by Crispin Boyer

Lena got this book for Christmas this year, but only recently dug into it.  She started surprising me with random facts about our bodies, the weather, and animals.  Every time I asked her where she had learned it, she said, "The WHY book!"  This book is jam packed with information that you didn't even know you were interested in, written in little chunks, perfect for flipping through.

Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day, part of March Reading Roundup

Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day? by Richard Scarry

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love Richard Scarry, and especially this book!  It's made up of several short stories about the different jobs that people (or in this case, animals) do in order to keep things running smoothly.

Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day, part of March Reading Roundup

Scarry has detailed (but child-friendly) illustrations that show how a house is built, how mail is sorted and delivered, how bread is made (from field to table) and more.  We've read this book over and over, and find new things to love each time.

Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown and The Railway Children, part of March Reading Roundup

The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit

We read a passage of The Railway Children in one of Lena's school books, and both girls were immediately hooked and wanted to hear more!  So, of course, I got it and we've all been enchanted with Edith Nesbit's writing.  This has been our main breakfast table read aloud choice this month.  We're all anxious to read more of Edith Nesbit's work.

Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown by Maud Hart Lovelace

The girls just LOVE the "Betsy and Tacy" series that I discussed in January's Reading Roundup.  We're on the fourth book now, and it is just as lovely and old fashioned as the first three.  This one is SO old fashioned, in fact, that there are some mentions of one of the characters painting herself in black face as part of a theater performance.  I skipped that part (it has absolutely no bearing on the story), but of course wanted to give you a heads up!

Charlotte's Web, part of March Reading Roundup

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

Lena is beginning to do some literature studies as part of her homeschool, and we started recently with Charlotte's Web.  I've read it aloud to her before, but it was a while ago and this time through we're really taking our time.  We've paired it with a literature study guide from Confessions Of A Homeschooler and she is loving completing the minibooks and doing some research about pigs and spiders and farms.

Charlotte's Web, part of March Reading Roundup

One of the suggested activities to go along with Charlotte's Web was to make a barn and farm diorama.  Luckily we had some brand new shoe boxes just waiting to be crafted!  Maggie (lover of all things tiny) immediately took over the farm and let ALL her miniature farm animals move in.  

Got a suggestion that we need to put on our library list?  Please tell me in the comments below!
