Currently Reading - January 2010

This year I plan on posting some favorite books each month. Some will be seasonal or to go along with a theme, but many will likely be some favorites that we enjoy reading together often. The boys received some wonderful books for Christmas (and C’s birthday). W is taking pride in being able to read the BOB series of books on his own.

· Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton

· Katy and the Big Snow by Virginia Lee Burton

· Winter Days in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder (My first Little House book)

· Winter on the Farm by L.I. Wilder (See above)

· BOB books Set One: Beginning Readers by Bobby Lynn Maslen

Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Suess

· My First Signs (Baby signing)

This morning W pulled off one of the Bob books off of his shelf. Santa gave him a Fridge Words Magnetic word builder for Christmas, which all the kids love but W has been fascinated with making three letter words and is getting better at sounding things out on his own and even using the letters to make larger words. So anyway, he was looking at the book "Sam" and started reading on his own! I occasionally have to remind him to sound things out if he asks me, but I was impressed that he can do many of the words on his own now. My little buddy is growing up.
