December 11th, 2011 · 6 Comments

So here we are in December and we have had a couple of great days… but still some cold and rainy ones – which are fabulous for library books… And I know soon enough we will be longing for rain so I am not complaining!!!

The book of the week: We have had a Calvin and Hobbes revival… Just can’t get enough of it… piles of comic books spread all over the house!!!

These little guys mostly flew under the radar while everyone else was busy with school…

    Can you give a list on some easy readers that are good to have “lying ” around? Do you buy them or get them from the library?

    Hi Tammy, Good to hear from you … there are a ton of easy readers in the Sonlight “Reading with Easy Readers” Curriculum, he is reading one of them in the photograph. Also at the library… and yes I am going to give you directions… in the long shelf down the middle of the kids section separating the tables on the one side and junior non-fiction in the other… the side next to the tables have heaps of classics and we always take a couple of those out… but on the side facing the junior non-fiction books there are literally tons of series of easy readers and my beginner readers work their way though it… some are super easy, ranging up to quite tricky… They seem to need a lot of practice at this stage and then it just clicks. Hope you find them!!! Have a good week – enjoy the sunshine!!!
