I love this bookmark.
My eleven-year-old and I just finished Lord of the Flies, and now we are reading One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams Garcia.
My 6-year-old and I just finished Ribsy by Beverly Cleary, and we are reading a lot of picture books lately.
What are you reading with a child?
That’s really cute. Unfortunately, I’m not reading anything with a child, but I do have a favorite bookmark. It was one made for me by my ex-sister-in-law. It is beaded, a black bookmark with beautiful green and white flowers on it.
That sounds beautiful!
Yes, it’s so well done, too.
My son and I are reading Dead End In Norvelt by Jack Gantos. Not my favourite, but it makes us laugh.
You are such a good mom! I tend to tell her to read the ones I don’t like by herself. 🙂
He won’t read it by himself, so I’m happy to read whatever he wants. 🙂
Some of my favorite memories are reading books with my children. When they were older I would read the book they were assigned at school and then have great discussions with them. Now they are adults and we share our love of reading by recommending books to each other. I also get a lot of joy when they tell me about their library excursion with their little ones.
How fun. I can’t wait for my oldest to start taking literature classes so we can read the same books!
My 10-year-old and I are reading the “I Survived” series. Of special interest to us was the I Survived the Titanic” which is his favorite topic of all! I hear there is one about the Joplin tornado. Can’t wait for that one. We’ve also enjoyed the Wimpy Kid books.
I bet Olivia would love that series. We’ll keep an eye out for the Joplin one.
H is very into Star Wars books (too young to have seen the movie), and he knows I love The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, so we read that pretty often. Oh, and a National Geographic book on rocks and minerals. Always an adventure. 🙂
Those sound like lots of fun! I bought a book for my girls called The New Way Things Work. We should also delve into some National Geographic. Good stuff!
That sounds great–I’ll try to remember it for when he’s a bit older. He peppers us with questions, and the National Geographic Big Book of Why was quite a help.
Cute bookmark! I often buy books as birthday or Christmas gifts for my nieces and nephew. One of my nieces, Ruby, is going to be nine at the end of this month and she loves reading, especially stories about ballet dancing. Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild was one of my favourite books when I was growing up.
Have you read any of Noel Streatfeild’s books with your girls? There are so many childhood books that I have fond memories of… Perhaps I should write a blog post about them.
I have not read Streatfeild’s books, but I will now! I can’t wait to see if my library has them and we will put them on our list to read next. You should write a post about your favorite childhood books so I can benefit from it. 🙂
What a great bookmark! I’m reading, or trying to read, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time with my 12 y/o but now that he’s a tween (always running out of time for mommy time at night) the reading’s been slow going even though he still enjoys it. I think we need to designate another time of day to read together!
Is he enjoying that one? I wouldn’t have thought of it as a YA novel, but it has been so long since I’ve read it that maybe I’ve forgotten.
I think it’s an adult novel, though I’d mistakenly assumed it would be innocent enough for him. He loves it, though I hesitate to read certain parts or words…;-)
