I know I am always looking for new books to read for the kids and myself, so I thought I would share with you what my family's favorites are at the moment. I would love if you would all share yours, as well. Always looking for more to read!
What We are Reading to the Kids:
On the Night Your Were Born For some reason, The Cool Cucumber LOVES this book. Every time I start reading it, his whole face lights up and he starts cooing. It is really weird. I never liked it much with The Quiet Contemplator, but love reading it to The Cucumber.
The Tickle Monster The Quiet Contemplator loves this book right now.
Where the Sidewalk Ends
A Light In The Attic
We love reading these books. I grew up with Shel Silverstein and, thankfully, my kids are too. One of my favorites is Hector the Collector, from Where the Sidewalk Ends. The Contemplator loves Complainin' Jack, from Falling Up.
The Pout Pout Fish Such a cute story and well written. I think it is a great reminder that we can all be happy if we just allow ourselves to be. Sometimes we feel we just aren't "designed" to be happy.
What Mommy is Reading:
The Hunger Games This was my first real dip in the reading pool since I had the kids. Sad, I know. What it did was remind me of what an ridiculously addictive reader I am. I finished these books in about a week. It was gross. I couldn't stop. Not because they were awesome or anything, but just because I love to have something easy to read.
Fifty Shades Mmmmm...Mommy porn. Me likey. So easy to see that this is Twilight fan fiction in the beginning, but it goes away about halfway through the first book. Besides, at least Christian gives it up, unlike that prude Edward.
(Yes, I sometimes read more intelligent stuff than Twilight-esqe drivel, but Mama is tired and just wants to give her brain a break for the time being.)
