I've decided to change things up a bit this year. For several months in 2013, in addition to my own reading, I posted what my girls (age 2 and 6) were reading. This was to help out other parents with some book choices for younger children, with both new titles and older classics. These were pretty popular posts, and I still get emails with questions for book suggestions for kids of all ages. I LOVE talking about books, and helping other people (not just parents) find a book for a kid in their life.
So to save time going forward, I am going to combine the 2 posts and do a general "What We're Reading This Month" that will include 3-4 books I have planned, as well as several books the girls will be reading, either together (with my almost 3 yr old) or reading to me (the almost 7 yr old).
The Spirit Thief by Rachel Aaron
Cress by Marissa Meyer
David & Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell
How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper
Samantha (age 7, reading level 2nd-3rd grade):
Weird School series by Dan Gutman
Nancy Drew Clue Crew series by Carolyn Keene
Maddy (age 3):
Let's Read with Dora!, 6 stories.
Note: when reading with my kids at about age 2-3 I start pointing to the words as I read the story. This is (IMO) a good way for them to start recognizing story-flow, word structure, letters, etc...all things having to do with reading/early learning and prep for reading themselves.
