Weekly Reading Basket #5

Join us every week with your #weeklyreadingbasket!

It’s been awhile since we’ve done a #weeklyreadingbasket post, but rest assured that our after-lunch read-aloud time is going strong! (We have been inspired by Veronica at Seven Lovely Things to make read-alouds a priority in our home.) I hope you will join us with YOUR reading basket this week; just use the hashtag on Instagram to link up with us!

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.”

— Garrison Keillor

See what our kiddos are reading this week and join us with the #weeklyreadingbasket hashtag!

Between the books I request for signing classes and books the girls choose for themselves, we average about 40 library books each week. As an avid reader myself, I want my girls to have lots of choices so that independent reading time is a treat, not a chore. It’s not unusual to find one or both girls curled up on the couch with a book during our free play mornings.

Now that she is done with naps, Addie (7) has been devouring chapter books at a pretty fast rate. We typically grab an extra “classic” (Laura Ingalls Wilder or Beverly Cleary) each week to add a little breathing room to my pre-reading process. Last week, we started a new series by Jessica Day George: Tuesdays at the Castle, Wednesdays in the Tower, and Thursdays with the Crown–all three books really captured my interest, and I’m excited to hear Addie’s thoughts when she finishes.

Kate (3.75) continues to love books written by Liesbet Slegers and the Maisy books by Lucy Cousins. Other winners this week include Katie Loves the Kittens, My Bus, A High, Low, Near, Far, Loud, Quiet Story, and two religious picture books: It Will Be Okay and Some Answers are Loud, Some Answers are Soft.

I added Maple and My Blue is Happy to this week’s stack because they are both thought-provoking and great for starting discussions with early readers!

What’s in your reading basket this week?

  1. This is great! I recently read a study that says the amount of books a child has access to increase their likelihood to go to college despite social economics or whether or not their parents graduated college.

  2. I love that y’all go to the library and get all these books to read! I think it’s one of those things that hardly anyone does anymore. Enjoy your reading! Stacie xo
