This summer we are doing some different reading. I’m doing some reading of chapter books for the girls. Plus exploring new chapter books for my daughter who just finished second grade. We all looking at the books and tried to pick out a few different ones to read. There are so many new and different chapter books to pick from!
We have read a lot of the Magic Tree House and Junie B. Jones books. The girls love them but don’t always want to sit down for reading them. But we are making time to do this. This summer we are exploring new books and series.
My Little Pony
My girls are very excited about My little Pony right now. We picked these books because they are interested in it. We read the books and having fun doing it. You never know what books will excite your child. These stories follow one of the ponies from the series. You know the setting and characters which is fun.
