Reading with kids

1. High Tide in Hawaii
Luke and I continue to read our way through the Magic Tree House series. In book # 28, Jack and Annie are in Hawaii and learn to surf and narrowly escape a tsunami. Luke and I discussed tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanoes. So much material, so little time!

2. Christmas in Camelot
In MTH # 29, Jack and Annie are summoned to Camelot by Merlin. So begins the Merlin series. It is an interesting discussion with kids - the difference between fiction and non-fiction. Or in their words: real and not real.

3. Toy Boat
A bedtime read while the boys were over for a sleepover last week. Cute story about a little boat. The graphics are quite fun.

4. The Monkey and the Crocodile
The boys loved this story about a cunning crocodile and a wily monkey. Recall hearing this story as a kid.

5. Never Take a Shark to the Dentist
And other things not to do. Both boys loved the graphics and the silliness of this book.

6. An Extraordinary Egg
Jonah loved the story about frogs who find a rock, which was declared to be a "chicken" egg. Turns out to be a alligator. Cute.
