What we are reading this June 2020

In my opinion, this is the best time of year to curl up with a book and get to reading. Lay a blanket on the lawn, enjoy the late Spring weather and read, read, read. Here is what we are reading this June.

 

Summer Reading Cover of Scholastic Branches Reader Owl Diaries Eva's Treetop Festival

Olivia (Age 7): The Owl Diaries Series

My first grader is loving this chapter book. Owl Diaries is a Branches series from Scholastic which means it’s made just for her. It’s perfect for helping her grow her independence as a reader.

 

 

Reading to our little one. Beauty and the Beast Big Golden Book CoverEvette (Age 5):
Beauty and the Beast

My little princess cannot get enough Belle these days. We picked up this book for her on our recent trip to Disney World. It’s a Golden Book, but it’s big! It’s a wonderful telling of the Disney film.

 

Reading to Baby. Apples to Zeppelin Board Book CoverSonny (Age 3 months):
Apples to Zeppelin

This was a fun gift from Sonny’s cousins. He loves hearing our voices read to him and the bright pictures on the page. It’s so important to read with our little ones. He’s already started mimicing the sounds that we make, especially oo’s and oh’s.

 

What I'm Reading. Winter in Paradise Book CoverOh, and when I get time:
Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand

A friend of mine recently suggested I check out this author when I mentioned that I was looking for a good series. I’m about halfway through this book and I am loving it!

 

 

3 Minute Gratitude Journal book coverBonus:
The 3 Minute Gratitude Journal for Kids

I thought this gratitude journal would be a great introduction to journaling for my girls, and is it ever! In times like these, it is especially important to reflect on what we are grateful for. I was so excited to find this journal and children will have no trouble finding meaning in it as well.

 

That’s what we’re reading this month. For more recommendations, I have a variety of book posts for the whole family here or find me on Goodreads.
