We generally visit our library weekly, but unfortunately recently the only ones checking books out have been the boys. So I decided to change that today. The first book Life of Pi by Yann Martel; I remember when this book first came out, I was living in the US then and Alex was but a year old, and I must have checked this book out of one library or another between the US and UK some 7 or 8 times, but I never got to read it - that is about to change NOW. The next book The Other Side of the Bridge by Mary Lawson; this sounded interesting and the last book is The Miracle at Speedy Motors by Alexander McCall Smith, part of the Ladies No.1 Detective Agency series. I have read all the series of books so far and have loved them all, so look forward to digging into this one. I find these books very easy to read and a good way to get back into reading after a book hiatus.
Here was some of the boys choices. The Secret Path by Nick Butterworth, Adrien loves the Percy the Park Keeper stories. Captain Small Pig by Martin Waddell & Susan Varley, The Black Cat by Allan Ahlberg & Andre Amstutz and lastly a very sweet story of a frog looking for a home, Home Sweet Home by Caroline Pitcher. This book was also good because at the back was notes to parents/teachers for ideas to extend the story beyond the book.
What are you reading? I love recommendations and am always interested in what others are reading.
