It has been a very exciting week for my son at school. He has been begging me to take him in early every single day. Why? Two words… BOOK. FAIR. The book fair was always my favorite and I love that my son finds it just as exciting. The kids get some book fair time with their class, and they can also go in the morning before the bell rings. There is also one night that they stay late for families to come. It is a major event for Hudson and he counts down the days.
I love going with him since I still love the book fair. Hudson was allowed to get two books, and he already knew exactly which ones he wanted… and we both selected two we thought Mila would like. They were all a huge hit and made our list this month.
Pokemon Kalos Region Handbook
My son is obsessed with all things Pokemon, so he loves this book. He likes looking up the characters he has, since he learns more about their powers and skill sets. He brings it to school almost every day, since he says him and his friends study it now before they make trades. Too funny!
Ranger in Time
So last month I talked about how I really wanted to start a chapter book with him and I found some great suggestions. But then Hudson started telling me how he needed this book since they talked about it on the morning announcements in school. It’s about a dog that somehow goes back in time and ends up on the Oregon Trail. Let’s just say I was less than excited to jump into this one with him… but we are already on chapter 6 and it doesn’t totally suck. He really loves it and looks forward to reading what comes next, so I guess that is what matters. Right? 😉
Doc McStuffins Blame it on the Rain
Mila is STILL all about her Doc McStuffins checkup kit, so I knew she would love this book. If this is based on an episode we haven’t seen it, but I hope it is since that would be fun for her to compare. The only downside to this book is that every time she asks my husband or I to read it we bust out singing the Milli Vanilli song. I mean, how can we not? (You know you did it too… admit it.)
|Our poor dog is getting ‘checkups’ ALL the time. She takes it like a champ though.|
Hudson spotted this in the book fair and it is a big hit. Not only did it come with a bunch of stickers, it is a totally new story for her to hear about Anna & Elsa. This is the book version of the short that was shown at the beginning of Cinderella movie, but she’s too young for that, so the story is all new to her. She LOVES the mini snowmen.
So those are the books my kids are currently loving! Are your kids into any good books right now?
