What We're Reading // Family Edition, (late) May 2015


One of my favorite bloggers, Elise Joy, has a monthly series where she highlights what she and her almost 2-year old are currently reading. eating, etc. It wouldn't be quite as cute for me to post the shoes that my 8 year old are wearing (that girl is hard on shoes) but what books we are currently engrossed in ... that I can get behind.

As we end May...

Mama // The Beekeeper's Apprentice: On the Segregation of the Queen by Laurie R. King. I said I was going to finally finish this and I did (and before May was over!) A very detailed and engrossing mystery that I thoroughly enjoyed though I don't recommend taking as long to get through it as I did.

N1, age 11 // she has been binge reading the Warrior cat series this spring and is nearing the end of the series finally.

N2, age 9 // Yes, we let our 9 year old read Harry Potter. She has LOVED the series and done fine with it (I think largely in part to the huge amounts of reading aloud that we've done and discussion through the series when needed). In our house, when you finish 3rd grade, you are allowed to read the HP series if you are ready for it and she most definitely was.

B, age 8 // She just got this series for her birthday at beginning of month and has pronounced it to be her first book that she's tackling as part of our summer reading "project."

The boy, age 4 // He loves himself a funny picture book and this story, from the author of his beloved Dragons Love Tacos, tickles him to no end.

Current read aloud // All of a Kind Family Downtown. We're hoping to read several more books in this series this summer!

Happy June and happy reading! : )

  1. ooh ooh I want to do this more regularly! Yay for Harry Potter : ) We didn't allow movie-watching past the first one until everyone had completed the series. I love the world of Harry Potter so much. Hot tip: you can buy the full box set with a whole bunch of extras not available in the U.S. from the UK Amazon store at a wildly reasonable price!

  2. Ah! I've been wanting to read The Beekeeper's Apprentice. Anything that has to do with Holmes, I'll read. =D
