What We're Reading -- September

It has been another month of amazing book finds and great reads around here! I'm constantly amazed by the shear number of fantastic kids books available! No matter what your child's interest is, there is bound to be a great book that you can use to explore these interests. Or a good book opens up a whole new world of interests. It can be the spark that a child needs to really become intensely interested in a particular area.  The power of reading is just incredible. So, here are some of the books that we read last month!

These were all really good! Some of these are old favorites that we were revisiting, and some have become new favorites that I'm sure we will read again! This month Henry's favorite was Fantastic Mr. Fox. As he enters the second plane, we have been reading more fantasy with him and longer chapter books. These types of books he just eats up and he couldn't get enough. Nora's favorite this month was Water in the Park. It is a wonderfully detailed account of a park and one of those books where you find a new detail each time you read it. 

My favorite was We March. It recounts the March on Washington 1963 and Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. Nora just enjoyed the story and pictures, but for Henry it sparked deep conversations about the civil rights movement and our own political climate. And because we live in an incredible time, we were able to go online and watch parts of the real march, and research other civil rights leaders that we heard speak. It was a great way to open up these discussions and let Henry take the lead on his interests. 

What have you been reading lately? Have any books sparked research or interests?
