This month we have a interesting mix of old and new books. I find it fascinating the ‘book phases’ my kids go through. They will have a particular book they will enjoy for what seems like forever, then it’s banished to the back of the book shelf until it is randomly discovered months later… and the cycle starts again!
Skippyjon Jones, Lost in Spice
I don’t recall if Skippyjon Jones has actually made it into a family favorites books post, but we have a TON of these books and Hudson used to request at least one of them every night. Recently, he found the Lost in Spice one, and he has been asking for it again. I think the entire Skippyjon series is really cute and creative, but this is the one series I absolutely HATE to read. All the books have crazy songs and random words are in Spanish and it always throws me off when I am reading. My husband will flat out refuse to read them.
Pit Crew Pups (Paw Patrol) (Step into Reading)
Paw Patrol is back people! I finally found some new books and the kids freaked out when I gave it to them! This one also has stickers which is a hit. After we read the book, Hudson let’s Mila select a sticker to put on her hand. (and let me tell you these things STICK, since when she wakes up the sticker is still right there!)
Ok… I know I just wrote about the BookRoo book delivery service last week, but this girl is beyond obsessed with this freaking book. She is really into counting right now, so we read what is on each page… but then she likes to count the critters on each page. Now if I could only get her to stop skipping the number 5…
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Great Balloon Chase
Ever since we went to Disney, Mila has a renewed love for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She found one of Hudson’s old books, and she loves it. I don’t read it to her before bed anymore since she gets herself worked up pushing all the buttons and standing up in her bed to make up dances to the little songs. So now it is a daytime book only, and she loves it!
Also this month, I need your help!! I really want to start a chapter book with Hudson. Maybe read a chapter or two together each night. I think it would be good for him so start reading a longer book, without pictures. Nothing crazy long either, maybe something that would take us a week or two to read? I would love to hear any book suggestions you guys have!
