What The Girls Are Reading This Month

I often get asked for suggestions on kids books for certain ages. And while I love getting asked about books of any kind, it does take me a minute to get my bearings when it comes to specific age groups. Because when a mom asks me for a good book recommendation for their 10 year old boy, I don't think he'd appreciate our current favorite reads of Pinkalicious, Fancy Nancy, or Goodnight Moon. Even though they're the first children's book titles that come to mind.

But just as I share what I plan to read each month, I thought it might be nice to also share what my girls' are enjoying as well. Yes these will be age, and somewhat gender specific. But particularly for Maddy who is 2, children's picture books tend to be rather gender neutral. So those of you with kids under the age of 8 will probably get the most "use" out of these lists. 

Also for reference, my older daughter Sam, who is 6 and in Kindergarten, is reading at about a 2nd grade level right now. I can't take all the credit for this (thank you Reading Eggs) but frankly I do kind of feel that for having a mama whose j.o.b. is in books and all the reading and phonics work we do together...she dang well better be reading at higher than grade level LOL!

  1. Ooh, I loved Miss Nelson is Missing when I was a kid! It taught me that teachers are actually HUMAN - who knew? ;)

  2. I have asked for suggestions for my grandkids, and you always hit the mark! Especially the "Peek a Who?" book! My 16 month old granddaughter loves this book, every time I pick it up she says 'mooooooo', I guess that's her favorite part :-)

    Oh, and the boys love "goodnight, goodnight construction site", I think it's the only book that really holds their attention!
