What My Child Is Reading

Our chosen books this week:

  • Hunchback of Notre Dame (Little Golden Book) - I picked this up for 50 cents at Half-Price Books. It tells the story of the Disney movie (which I inexplicably love). I feel like the movie is pretty advanced for a 4 year old, but the book left out the questionable bits. I was glad to find a simple version of the original movie story. (I know it completely changes the original novel but for some reason that doesn't bother me as much as Pocahontas which I absolutely refuse to watch.)
  •  The Amazing Spiderman - One of the free comic books that Monkey Georgia got on Free Comic Book Day.
  • I Can Do It Myself by Diane Adams - I hear this way too often at my house! At least at the end of the book, the girl acknowledges that sometimes it IS nice for Mama to do things too.
  • Jam & Honey by Melita Morales - A girl and a bee are both visiting a berry patch and are apprehensive about facing one another. They both receive a lesson in space sharing.
  • Timothy and the Strong Pajamas by Viviane Schwarz - This is SO cute! Much more appropriate than even many of the kid-friendly comics (since they are even too old for preschoolers), and it's told in comic book style.

Timothy and the Strong PJs sounds great. I'm trying to introduce more variety in text structures to my sons (especially my older 3 year old) but it's sometimes hard to find it at age appropriate levels.
