OK, I'm a big fan of reading. So is the rest of my family. So I think on Tuesdays I'm going to write about books I'm reading, the kids are reading or that I've read. Also - I'm asking that people give some recommendations of books (esp any good adoption ones but books of any kind) that I should read.
To start today I am going to tell you that I think the Magic Tree House books (or the Jack and Annie books, as my kids call them) are fantastic! We've read a lot of them and now in the first and second to last chapter of each book when it says "The wind started to blow, the tree house started to spin. It spun faster and faster. Then everything was still. Absolutely still." our whole household chants this together. It's so fun to listen to the kids say it with great expression! :) Then we all laugh when we're done. Yesterday Brian was nearby when I was reading to them so all 4 of us chanted it together and it filled my heart. :)
I am currently reading a wonderful parenting book called "Bringing up Geeks". It's a great book and I highly recommend it. It's something you can start in toddlerhood (is that a word?) and only becomes more and more wonderful and useful as your kids get older.
Please share any book recommendations. I'd love to hear them!
