February was a slim month. It's not that we didn't read. We are reading. The kindergartner is reading to us -- 1 to 2 books a night. And, well, my child is not a fast reader -- especially if tired, uninterested, or if the pictures in the book have NOTHING to do with the words on the page. I have checked for a number of the books that kiddo has read to us and most do not show up, but a selection of the ones that do are below.
I don't want to dissuade anyone from trying Bob Books. I'm seriously considering getting this particular set "Sight Words Kindergarten" for us to have over the summer for continued practice.
Maybe, quite possibly, it is the amount of time I devote to teaching my own kid outside of school what school is there to teach that I resent. Truly, I do. I want to send my kid to school and just know that kid will come home well learned. Life is not like that. There are days when I'm not a fan of this aspect of life.
Little Critter Books by Mercer Meyer
If you haven't read Mercer Meyer's Little Critter books before, please let me suggest you start with ME TOO. It's so fun and easy. In fact, this is one of the books that my eldest will attempt to read without getting upset. Kid is really good at knowing when to yell, "Me too!"
You can guess from the title and cover what the story is about. I'm still pleased with how much both of my kids relate to Little Critter. Another of our favorites, including the learning-to-read child, is I WAS SO MAD. Twenty-seven times through and I still smile... Just for honesty, these are our books. We have a healthy collection. It all started with I WAS SO MAD. Consider yourself forewarned.
I'm certain we read other books. Absolutely certain, but I can't find most of them to provide a link. Hopefully March will result in more reading and better options for reporting that reading. Until then... have a fun time reading to yourself and/or your kids. It's one of the best things we can do together.
