It has been interesting to watch her book choices. I'm happy to report that there does seem to be life after Rainbow Magic books!
Here is a list of her current favorites. These are books she reads to herself. She is big into series -
1) Bailey School Kids
2) A to Z Mystery
3) Ivy and Bean
4) Junie B Jones*
5) Roald Dahl
6) Sophie and the Shadow Woods
7) Judy Moody
Here is a list of the books Bryce and I have read to her:
1) Because of Winn Dixie - I LOVE this book. I read it to my second graders when I was a teacher and fell in love with it then. Eva and I recently watched the movie and it was S.L.O.W. The happy ending made up for it, though.
2) The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane - This was recommended by a friend and it was as beautiful and poignant as it was promised to be. Eva enjoyed it but missed the deeper layers. This is a beautiful book. I will definitely re-read it.
3) Harry Potter 1 and 2 (in progress)
4) The Borrowers
And the exciting news (for me at least) is that I think Audrey is ready to listen to the Little House on the Prairie books. I've been reading Rainbow Magic books to her and she is now able to sit/listen/stay interested for a chapter or 2. As soon as Bryce is done reading Harry Potter 2 to Eva the three of us girls will start Little House. I hope they love it like I did!
You know I love to talk about children's books so please tell us what are your kiddos reading these days?
