What My Child is Reading- May 30, 2010









This is a new blog hop I am participating in because we LOVE to read, and there is always lots of reading going on around here!  Because we haven't officially started back to school, I focused on the current bedtime books we're reading.

This blog hop is hosted at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.

I am currently reading 26 Faimount Avenue by Tomie dePaola to Ashlyne and Rachel as our bedtime book.
26 Fairmount Avenue (Newbery Honor Book, 2000)
I love anything by Tomie dePaola, the artist and illustrator who writes the Strega Nona books.  This book is a simple memoir of his childhood centered around his family's building of a house and moving from an apartment.  He shares lots of funny stories about his childhood which the girls are loving!

Kathryne and Charles and I are reading Lord Brocktree as our bedtime book.

Lord Brocktree: A Tale from Redwall

This is a Redwall book by Brian Jacques.  We fell in love with Redwall last year and have now read four or five of the books.  If you haven't yet experienced Redwall think medieval fantasy with animals as the characters.  Redwall books are your typical good versus evil stories with lots of interesting animal characters thrown in.  My kid love the different accents and dialects Jacques gives the characters- especially when I read in "mole speak."

  1. We like Tomie dePaola, but we haven't read that one. It looks interesting.
