These are a few of the books we’re reading this week. They range from advanced (for a 3 year old) to super simple.
1. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
Four adventurous siblings—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie—step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.
2. Missy’s Super Duper Royal Deluxe #4: Field Trip by Susan Nees
In this book, Missy’s class goes on a field trip to the state capitol. Missy cannot wait to visit what she is sure will be the most awesome gift shop ever! But she soon learns that the capitol does not have a gift shop. Missy decides this simply MUST change! Since the students are all partnered up for the day, Missy cannot go anywhere without Oscar. Missy knows she is supposed to complete the tour along with the rest of her class, but does Missy do anything like everyone else?
3. My First 500 Words by Jenny Tulip
This is a simple “find it” book. It’s nice having books that KidFish can “read” all by herself.
4. You Are Special by Max Lucado
Every day the small wooden people called Wemmicks do the same thing: stick either gold stars or gray dots on one another. The pretty ones–those with smooth wood and fine paint–always get stars. The talented ones do, too. Others, though, who can do little or who have chipped paint, get ugly gray dots. Like Punchinello.
In this heartwarming children’s tale from the best-selling pen of author Max Lucado, Eli the woodcarver helps Punchinello understand how special he is–no matter what other Wemmicks may think. It’s a vital message for children everywhere: that regardless of how the world evaluates them, God cherishes each of them, just as they are.
