Reading Time

Lately, Little Man has been bringing me books to read to him by the armload. Just now we read:

  • Baby Touch and Feel Farm
  • Usborne Very Virst Nursery Rhymes
  • Big Bear Little Bear
  • Winnie the Pooh – Pooh’s Spring-Cleaning Mystery
  • Winnie the Pooh – Eeyore Looses His Tail … Again
  • My World
  • Goodnight Gorilla

And now he’s headed my way with another armload. Do you like reading with your kids? What are their favorite books?

Every night before bed, I read Little Man a story from one of our favorite books. We read from Uncle Arthur’s Bedtime Stories, 3 Minute Bedtime Stories, and a few others too but those are the two we’re working through right now. I picked up some great books at our local library’s book sale  in Virginia before we moved. I’ve got the complete Grimm’s Fairy-tales which we won’t be reading for awhile but I still loved finding it.
