What My Child is Reading

Easing back into the blogging world with some of the books we've been reading this week.

After reading all 7 Rainbow Fairy books of the Rainbow Magic Series (did you follow that?), Pinky was very excited to learn that there are a lot of other book sets. She was even happier that the Easter Bunny was kind enough to leave one of those sets in her basket - the Jewel Fairies.

The books are about 2 girls, Rachel and Kirsty, who help a series of fairies overcome Jack Frost's evil plans and save Fairyland. The books are repetitive, but that hasn't stopped Pinky from enjoying every one. They're perfect books for those beginning to read chapter books or for any child who loves magic, rainbows and fairies.

She has also been reading BOB books. I really can't tell you how much we LOVE these books. Great for beginner readers.

Chaos really enjoys I Spy books. We've been reading I Spy Little Numbers a lot lately.

He has also requested A Mud Pie for Mother nearly every night before bed - a very cute story about Little Pig searching for the perfect gift for his mother.

Wild One continues to love books. We read nearly all of the books on her bookshelf each week, but her favorite this week seems to be Baby Einstein Mirror Me. Each page shows a character making a silly face (puffing out cheeks, sticking out tongue, etc). She really enjoys looking at herself in the mirror on each page. She doesn't always try to mimic the facial expressions, but she finds it hilarious when I do.

I have heard mixed reviews about the Bob books, but am glad to hear they are going over well in your house. :) I just put the first set on hold at our library (so lucky they have them!), so we'll see how they work for us. I also just put A Mud Pie for Mother on hold - sounds adorable!! Thanks for sharing!

I've been wanting to check out the bob books ebooks. Are you using the print books or the ebooks? I'll have to look for the mirror me book. I think that would be perfect for my toddler.

We tried to read those Fairies book series here, but my daughter hates anything remotely scary. The moment goblins appeared, she declared the book "too scary". I am kind of glad, because I agree with you - there is very little substance in the stories. Thanks for joining WMCIR!

We enjoy Mirror Me and the Bob Books are just starting to get some attention here. The Mud Pie for Mother book looks appealing - hope I can find it through our library! Thanks for linking up at Feed Me Books Friday!
