My plan for February was to take my kids to the library and get a bunch of cute Valentine-ish books. Well, our weekends have been pretty booked, so my kids have been reading books we already have in the house. I did get Hudson a few new chapter books, and 2 of them were a huge hit. My sweet girl also turned 3 this month and we had an amazing weekend celebrating!
|Happy Birthday to me!|
|So many cuties!|
|Love these kids!|

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Hudson has been asking for books in this series for awhile, and after reading the reviews on Amazon, I was a little hesitant to buy it. The story is all in good fun, but it does talk about some issues I wasn’t sure Hudson should be reading about in 1st grade. (examples: hating school, cool kids/dorky kids, girls… etc) But I decided to give it a go and he really loves the book. He brings it to school to read with his friends and I read it to him before bed. (sometimes I skip over parts I don’t like) This books is pretty funny and sometimes we are laughing so loud reading it that Mila will yell at us from her room, “Be quiet… I am trying to go sleep!”
Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja
I found this after searching “ninja” books. This book had good reviews, so I decided to give it a go. To be totally honest, I have not read any of it, but Hudson says he has been reading it and really enjoys it. He says he reads it with his friends at aftercare. Here’s the summary from Amazon:
My name is Chase Cooper, and I’m a 6th grade ninja. It’s my first day at
a different school and the only person I know is my cousin, Zoe (but
she might be a little too cool for me). I was just another scrawny kid
until a group of ninjas recruited me into their clan. It was a world of
trouble I wasn’t prepared for, which is why I kept this diary (or “chronicle”
as my dad would call it) – to warn other kids about the dangers of
becoming a ninja. They say history is destined to repeat itself… well,
not if I can help it.
Watch Out, Ariel!
I feel like this may have made the list before, since this is one of Mila’s favorites. In addition to all things princess, she is also obsessed with mermaids. We have a number of mermaid babies, barbies and dolls. (most of them just live in the bathtub) Ariel gets herself in some trouble throughout this book, since she doesn’t listen or pay attention very well.
We got one of these magazines sent to the house as a freebie… and the kids liked it so much that I bought a subscription. My kids have a few different magazine subscriptions, and they get so excited when a new one comes in the mail! Each magazine has a bunch of different stories and Mila loves it.
