Well hello there Wednesday.
Today’s post is about books for little readers. Now…I’m basically doing this post so that you awesome people will share your recommendations with the group. #prettyplease I have two little readers at my house and I try as hard as I can to encourage them to find books they love so that they continue to want to read. I am having an easier time with Kensington…it’s harder for me to come up with boy books for Smith. So, I’m begging for suggestions. #pleaseandthankyou
So, let’s start with Smith. Mr. Smith has recently become a fan of chapter books. Now, I am encouraging this with good old-fashioned bribery. I bought him a little book light and a super hero book mark that he LOVES. At night, I’ll let him turn off all of his lights and read in bed with his little book light. He thinks this is so cool, so score one for mom. His books of choice right now are any sort of Ninja Turtle or Lego book. I mean…the school sends home those Scholastic Book Club flyers every month, and he picks those every time. I’m totally fine with those choices because he’ll read them, but seriously, if you have other chapter book recommendations for young boy readers, I would love some! He basically checks the same things out at the library too…so, I’d love to be able to suggest some other books to him.
Now, this girl is easier. These are the books she loves to read right now:
Junie B. Jones (it’s a series)
American Girl books (any of them)
Katie Woo (also a series)
Ramona books (good old-fashioned Beverly Cleary from back in the day)
These little books and series are her favorites and she almost always has one with her. #likemotherlikedaughter If you have any other girl suggestions for this age, again, please share!!
So, that’s it…I’m hoping you take the lead and share some great choices to encourage all of our little readers.
And one last note…I don’t often ask for prayer requests here in online world, but I’m asking today. I have two. Sweet Ashby is having yet another procedure this morning. You know the drill: hospital all day, home with her hand and arm wrapped and in a sling for about 10 days, lots of pain and pain meds. Prayers for our sweet girl please. Pray for her mental strength. I don’t know how many of these she’s going to be able to do before it just breaks her down emotionally. These procedures are working (PRAISE JESUS!) and she needs them to protect against blood clots…but she’s four and this sucks, so we need prayer. And finally, I have a sweet four-year old boy in my family that needs your prayers BIG TIME today. I can’t go into details because it’s not my place, but I know my family would greatly appreciate them. Please pray for this little man who is so special and needs the Lord to move in a BIG way today. Two four-year olds, one mighty God.
