– What I’m currently reading
I know I said I’d read Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine next but my friend Mia was kind enough to let me borrow her Hunger Games books (I must have looked quite desperate). So I’m about to start Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, the sequel to The Hunger Games and I can’t wait to see what happens!
– What they’re currently reading
– Bunnicula: The Vampire Bunny by James Howe. This book is the shorter version of the original Bunnicula, allowing my independent reader to enjoy the story in one sitting. Chester the cat shares his suspicions about Bunnicula, the new family rabbit, with Howie the dog. He sets off to prove that Bunnicula is a vampire bunny because he sucks vegetables until they turn white. Spooky and hilarious! We read many of the Bunnicula books a while ago but they’re so good, they’re worth reading again.
– Earthquack! by Margie Palatini. Similar to the Chicken Little story, this books tells of a small duck who panics when he feels the earth grumbling and rumbling under his webbed feet. He manages to scare all the barn animals until the group reaches a hungry weasel, who sees all the ingredients for a good dinner. This story has a happy ending, at least for the barn animals, and a couple of moles happen to be responsible for the earthquack. A cute story for little ones.
– What they recently finished reading
– Hogwash by Karma Wilson. The farmer is on a mission to bathe all his farm animals, but when he gets to the pig sty, he faces a lot of resistance from the pigs who enjoyed their mud bath too much to get out and get clean.
– We enjoyed the adventures of Minerva Louise the hen, the funny books by Janet Morgan Stoeke, including Minerva Louise and the Red Truck and Minerva Louise on Halloween. Minerva Louise may not be too sharp but she sure is funny, trying to interpret things around her based on her own observations.
– What I think they’ll read next
I don’t know but I’m sure it will be good stuff. What about you? Any books you or your kids are reading you’d like to share?
