Books Read #17-20 ⎮ May 2017

Since my decision to homeschool Jack this fall, I have been on a bit of a crash course to research all things homeschool related. I have to admit that it is kind of exciting to be elbow deep in this type of research. In a later post I will share what my ultimate schooling plan is for the fall, but for now I just want to share a snippet of what I have been immersed in.

First up in May, I read The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling by

How to Raise a Wild Child: The Art and Science of Falling in Love with Nature by


A friend recently lent me Play The Forest School Way: Woodland Games and Crafts for Adventurous Kids by

Over the course of the last several weeks, I read the third book in The Guardians series, Toothiana: Queen of the Tooth Fairy Armies, by William Joyce to Jack. I have to say that I am loving the series, but it feels like Jack is over it. He typically plays Legos while I read and we periodically discuss what is going on (he wants to see all of the drawings), but he hasn't been really paying attention. He says he wants to continue with the final book. He is excited that the next book has Jack Frost as a supporting character – he's pumped that Jack Frost shares his name, and I have promised we will watch the movie when we finally finish, so that helps. I think he will have to reread the series in a couple of years when he has more patience for it.

Honorable Mention:
We read another from the Flat Stanley series by creator Jeff Brown to Jack this month. This time he picked out The Amazing Mexican Secret (Flat Stanley's Worldwide Adventures #5). I think he may be losing interest in Flat Stanley since we only read this book through one time.

Right now Jack picks out five books every time we visit the library and we read through all of them multiple times, along with our own books at home that continue to be long-time favorites.

Isaac's Favorite Books are currently Your Baby's First Word Will Be DADA by Jimmy Fallon and I Know a Wee Piggy by Kim Norman. Most of our baby and toddler books I could quote in my sleep at this point in my life...
