I haven't had a chance to do one of these in ages! So far summer has been flying by in a wave of work, kids, swimming and reading, just not as much action on the blog.
Both of the kids are signed up in the library's summer reading program. I don't know if I am going get any reviews out of the them, but I am going to extract thumbs up/thumbs down out of them for each of the books they read. My little Leopard has discovered Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books - definite thumbs up. The Pigeon Needs a Bath! is also a thumbs up - Pigeon takes baths an awful lot like my daughter :) My son has been reading Harry Potter (thumbs way up) but is taking a bit of a break because he was getting a little too emotionally invested. Right now he is reading the first book in The Dragonology Chronicles: The Dragon's Eye. We'll see how that goes.
This past week I wrote reviews for ...
- The Star of Kazan by Eva Ibbotson
- Under the Egg by Laura Marx Fitzgerald
- Cress by Marissa Meyer
- Dial-a-Ghost by Eva Ibbotson
I have no idea what I am going to accomplish this week.
