Another year is coming to an end. Did you meet your reading goal? I came close this year. In reality, I read well over my goal but since I don’t count books I read for review purposes I fell a bit short. I’m here to remind you that it is okay if you didn’t read as much as you wanted. You can start a new goal for 2024. Here are a few to add to the list.
Let Me Knock That Off the Table for You – JustaBXgirl loves cats. This book was a fun treat for her because not only does it include a heap of entertaining cat photos but it also contains an amusing look into the minds of what cats are thinking.
Pop Out Space Travel – Yup, I’m including three books from the Pop Out series. These books are fabulous. Space Travel takes us on a trip to a space station and allows us to explore the planets. I love that JustaBxgirl and HOPs can enjoy these together. JustaBX helps HOPS put the pop-out pieces together. While HOPS is playing with the pop-out astronaut, JustaBXgirl reads the information included. We study new vocabulary and learn fun facts about the space station.
Pop Out Around The World – We get to visit six cities in different countries in this edition of Pop Out and it is quite an adventure. We get to practice vocabulary from each and put together landmarks. We like to take this and the Space Travel to create adventures.
Pop Out Dinosaurs – If you have a dino lover then you want to add this to your collection. It includes six dinosaurs that we get to build and learn more about. We get a timeline to learn when each type lived, what they ate and other fun facts.
Mr. Zip’s Windy Day – Mr. Zip is busy delivering mail with B. Franklin the eagle when the windy day sends them on an adventure to gather up all the mail that was swept up in the gust. We get to join them on the adventure and flip up to see the scenes in action.
The Worst Wizard Book 1 Awkward Magic – What happens when you are training to be a legendary knight and find out you have magic? You get kicked out of knight training, of course! Ned is unhappy that he’s being sent to the Wizzie House but trust that’s not the worst thing that’s going to happen in Awkward Magic. This is a really fun and entertaining read. We can’t wait for for Book 2.
The Perfect One – This book is beautiful because there are so many layers to the conversations that can be had with it. It is a story about sisters who have very different outlooks. One strives to be perfect while the other believes that she already is perfect how she is. When they attempt a new activity it is interesting to see how they prepare and grow throughout the day. The best part is how the mom sums up the lesson they learned at the end.
Sorgho Squad – The Sorgho Squad was created to educate about and promote small climate-smart grains such as sorghum and millet. The books themselves are an adventure in the form of a graphic novel. Readers get to meet Alice Atlas (a 14-year-old genius) and Professor Adam Sorgho as they attempt to solve problems of the world. It is a great way to introduce climate change, sustainability, and other subjects to littles. I plan to use them in our homeschool world as well.
