Our Weekly Bookshelf

It's so much fun to share our highlights with you, and if you're anything like me, I love seeing what other folk are reading!

(Extra special favorites this week are marked with an asterisk).

As the title implies, this is indeed a silly tale, that had my three kiddos in giggles. This is a reread for us, and just a delightfully goofy story. 

My four year old twins enjoyed guessing who liked in each of the homes depicted. A sweet book. 

A lovely glimpse into a young girl's Sabbath preparations with her Nana. The illustrations in this book are wonderful; we really enjoyed this one b

What is Uptown? This book answers that question with wonderful art work and a sparse narrative. 

Hands down, my children's favorite book of the week! A little surreal (similar to Ruth Krauss' A Hole Is to Dig), this book is a series of vignettes, rhymes and whimsies. 

This one was my personal favorite of the week. Beautiful illustrations (by P. J. Lynch), this book shares the story of a young girl immigrating to the States in the early 1900s. Stunning. 

A funny, sweet book about a homeschool home; as homeschoolers, my children loved reading a book that captured their homeschool-home!

When a young boy wants a doll, some friends and family members are critical. This book is a gentle nod of approval to every boy who wants to care for a doll. 

"Crinkleroot was born in a tree and raised by bees ... " We are huge fans of the Crinkleroot books, and their nature focus. 

This book follows the journey of a storm; the double page illustrations were particularly popular with my audience!

A surreal little book, exploring the imaginative creations possible with pen and paper. A great read for any budding artists.
