We Love Ballet, part of reading roundup- favorite books from June

We Love Ballet by Jane Feldman

Maggie loves ballet, so she has been enjoying this sweet and simple ballet book recently.  It follows a young girl through her ballet class, describing what they wear, how they warm up, different exercises they do, and other elements of class.

It also briefly describes basic ballet positions, which Maggie and Lena both love to practice.  This book is a great choice for any toddler or preschooler interested in ballet.

Follow The Line To School, part of reading roundup- favorite books from June

Follow The Line To School by Laura Ljungkvist

Follow The Line To School is part of a really fun series that includes Follow The Line, Follow The Line Through The House, and Follow The Line Around The World.  This book describes a day at school. What makes these books so much fun is that your child can follow one continuous line throughout the whole book.  It weaves its way through the illustrations and from page to page.

Lena LOVES choosing this book at bedtime because following the line is a great stall technique!  I also really like how following the line encourages your child to slow down and really take their time on each page.

Treasury For All Seasons, part of reading roundup- favorite books from June

Julie Andrews' Treasury For All Seasons: Poems And Songs To Celebrate The Year

Poetry is such a nice thing to add to your child's life.  Through some of Lena's schoolwork this year we have learned that she has a real knack for memorization and recitation.  It's a skill that I'd like to encourage and nurture in her, so we've been reading a lot from this poetry book and she's been picking up dome pieces here and there.

This is a beautiful collection of poems, with nice choices for every season and holiday.  The illustrations are a huge part of why we love this book so much-- isn't this gorgeous?

Ramona Series, part of reading roundup- favorite books from June

"Ramona" series by Beverly Cleary

Ramona was one of my favorite characters when I was a little girl, and the series about her was one of the first chapter books that I read.  I was SO excited to get them for Lena and see if she'd like them as much as I did.  She's been devouring them, trying to stay up late to read, and exhibiting less-than-perfect attitude when it's time to stop and move on to something else.  Ramona is so much fun, and while she's a little mischievous, it's nothing too bad and the humor outweighs the possible poor influence, on my opinion.

All Of A Kind Family, part of reading roundup- favorite books from June

All-Of-A-Kind Family by Sydney Taylor

Lena and Maggie both just love old fashioned stories.  After we read some excerpts from All-Of-A-Kind Family as part of  Lena's copywork earlier this year, they both begged me to get the book and read it to them.  How could I say no?  It's been our breakfast read aloud lately.  The story is about five sisters growing up in New York City around 1910. The family is Jewish, so the girls learned all about many Jewish holidays and customs as we read.  We were all happy to learn that there are several more in the series!

Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever, part of reading roundup- favorite books from June

Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever by Richard Scarry

We're huge fans of Richard Scarry around here.  Maggie got this big collection of Richard Scarry stories recently, and it's awesome.  There are lots of stories, but also short little bits about colors, letters, numbers, and vocabulary.  It's a really nice book for a child to just thumb through on their own-- we've had it for several months and I still don't think we've found everything in it!

Centennial, part of reading roundup- favorite books from June

Centennial by James Michener

My latest sweeping historical fiction is Centennial by James Michener.  It's about the history of a small town in Colorado, and incorporates many threads of American history.  It starts with a detailed lesson on geology, and moves through the prehistoric era, into early humans in the area, Native Americans, and then to European settlers.  It's nice to learn some history along with great storytelling.
