My girls are in an American Girl mood at the moment and got the following books from that series, most of which they have read before and enjoyed:
Addy’s Short Story Collection
A Molly Mystery: The Light in the Cellar
Happy Birthday, Molly
Really Truly Ruthie
They also checked out these books from other series they like to read:
A to Z Mysteries: The X’ed-Out X-Ray
The Cul-de-sac Kids: The Upside-Down Day
We had previously checked out A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. I want my girls to develop an appreciation for good poetry, so was happy when my older daughter requested that we get this book again. I’m hoping to find a used copy of it that I can purchase for ourselves.
A couple that were new to us this time were The Secret Soldier: The Story of Deborah Sampson by Ann McGovern and The Cricket in Times Square by George Selden. I skimmed both of these; the latter is a Newbery Honor book and looks quite entertaining and age-appropriate.
As for myself, the bookshelf located by the library exit that contains used books for sale got me again! Here’s what I bought for my own reading:
If Mama Ain’t Happy, Ain’t Nobody Happy by Lindsey O’Connor
The Birth Order Book by Kevin Leman. I have actually read this one before, but wanted to re-read it and add it to my own collection.
The Perfect Wife: The Life and Choices of Laura Bush by Ann Gerhart
Ronald Reagan in Private: A Memoir of My Years in the White House by Jim Kuhn. Ronald Reagan is one of my favorite Presidents and I enjoy reading books about him.
I’m also currently reading The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley. Look for a review of that book coming up soon!
