As you know, Saraya has lately become an avid reader. She and I sorted out our children's classics bookcase this morning into piles - what she's read, what she wants to read next, and what she will read when she's older.
We did this because she just exhausted the pile our friend Jane loaned us (thanks Jane!), and the other books I recently purchased for her. I thought I'd share the titles Saraya has enjoyed these past few weeks so you can share them with your own little people!
The Boxcar Children series by Gertrude Chandler Warner (I am slowly collecting these; I think Saraya has read about 10 titles so far)
Little Pear by Eleanor Francis Lattimore
"B" is for Betsy by Carolyn Haywood
The Boy with the Green Thumb by Barbara Euphan Todd
Hello, Mrs Piggle-Wiggle by Betty MacDonald
The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage Carlson
The Famous Five series by Enid Blyton (we borrowed 2 of these from the library last week, and Saraya loved them)
The Secret Seven series by Enid Blyton (same as above!)
Daughter of the Mountains by Louise Rankin
Elmer and the Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett
The Dragons of Blueland by Ruth Stiles Gannett
The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary
Runaway Ralph by Beverly Cleary
The Courage of Sarah Noble by Alice Dalgliesh
I'm sorry I haven't included links - I just don't have time! Please check your local library or the ever-faithful Book Depository.
See this post too for other books Saraya has enjoyed, and this post for other books we would recommend - many were read-alouds in our family.
Today I am reading The Diary of Anne Frank, and Saraya is reading The Pied Piper of Hamlin. We will read a chapter of The Secret Garden later, and no doubt the little boys will by flicking through the pages of Dr Seuss or Curious George!
What's in your lap this week?
