Library Love Vol. 4

Linking up with Christina and sharing our current favorites from our weekly trip to the library.

  • Earl the Squirrel by Don Freeman – This is a good read aloud book.  Genevieve, our animal lover, enjoyed this book.  It’s about a little squirrel who needs to learn how to find acorns on his own.

  • The Scarecrow’s Dance by Jane Yolen – Both girls adored this book.  At first,  I was unsure but I quickly fell in love with this book.  It’s basically a poem with beautiful illustrations.  Honestly, I’ve waited three weeks or more for this book to be available and it was worth the wait.

  • This Is My Home, This Is My School by Jonathan Bean – This is a winner! Whether you homeschool or not, this book is a must read.  I think this is the third time we’ve checked this book out and the girls still love it.  Maybe I need to add it to their wish list for Christmas?

  • Fancy Nancy Saturday Night Sleepover by Jane O’Connor – We adore Fancy Nancy! This book came out in the beginning of the year and we finally were able to snag it this week.  I kept forgetting to put a hold on it.  Honestly, this book made me tear up.  This is a must read for all Fancy Nancy lovers, especially sisters.

  • Mr. McGinty’s Monarchs by Linda Vander Heyden – Our girls love butterflies.  So when I saw this book in the new release section I had to borrow it.  It’s an adorable book about an elderly man who saves his neighborhood monarchs.  If it was springtime I would be planting milkweed along the side of our house.

What children’s books have you enjoyed lately?

  1. I’ve wondered about the homeschooling book. I’ve stayed away because I didn’t want it to be…forced. Does that make sense? As if the publisher said, “There aren’t any books about homeschool families, so the bar is real low. Let’s break into that niche market with a drivelly book.” I just put it on hold at the library, though. Thanks for previewing it.

    Thanks for sharing your winners! I’ve really enjoyed your picks so far. <3

    1. We have only kinda homeschooled our oldest for preschool. Like way low expectations. What I loved about the book is that to me it emphasizes how “school” is all around you and that it always looks different. I hope you enjoy the book.

      Aww, I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the books I’ve shared so far. 🙂
