B & K's Reading Daze

I have two girls who love to read as much as I do.  They are  7 and 5.  My oldest has grown in  leaps and bounds in the reading departmment.  My youngest is beginning to pick up on sight words.  I'm so excited that this love of mine seems to be passing on to them.  So B & K's Reading Daze highlights some of the books they have enjoyed over the past month.  

We've just recently had the book fair at school which is a highlight for all of us.  The girls love picking out new books!

K's Books:  

Bedtime for Little Bears!Title: Bedtime for Little Bears!
Author: David Bedford
Little Bear flumped down in the snow and wiggled his tail. I'm not sleepy, he said, and I don't want to go to bed yet. Mother Bear smiled. Shall we take one last walk, she said, and see who else is going to bed? Little Bear and Mother Bear take one last walk to see the other animals getting ready for bed. Will this make Little Bear sleepy enough to snuggle down for the night? With cuddly illustrations painted in cool tones, this wonderful bedtime book is the perfect story for any child who isn't quite ready to go to sleep.

I was really proud of K with this one.  Picture books can be difficult because they aren't usually geared towards young readers.  But she got through this with very little help.  Plus, I thought the story was cute!

B's Books: 

Dewey: There's a Cat in the Library!Title: Dewey: There's A Cat in the Library!
Author: Vicki Myron, Bret Witter, Steve James

When Librarian Vicki Myron finds a young kitten abandoned in the Spencer Library return box, she nurses him back to health, deciding then and there that he will be their library cat, and naming him, appropriately, Dewey Readmore Books. Dewey loves his new home, but once he discovers the littlest library visitors-who like to chase him, pull his tail, and squeeze him extra tight-Dewey begins to wonder if he's truly cut out for the demands of his new job. In the end, he is triumphant as he realizes that helping people big and small is what he is meant to do, and that by sharing his special brand of Dewey love, he can be the best library cat of all.

B loves her kitty so it's no surprise that she was drawn to this book.  Combine a lovable cat and the library, and this was a winner for use.  Just a cute story.  Maybe one day I'll read the book!
