We spent the first half of the month battling being sick. My parents brought over some books that my brother and I had growing up. It was so fun looking back through them and getting to introduce the boys to some of my favorite books from childhood. A lot of those books ended up on this list.
Pig Pig Goes to Camp – This book follows Pig Pig on his adventure to summer camp. I think this was one of the boys favorites this month.
The Fabulous Fairy Tale Follies – This book is sort of like Where’s Waldo, but fairy-tale style. The boys enjoyed just sitting and looking over the pictures,
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs – I loved this book as a kid, and it was so much fun to read it to our boys. I don’t think they fully grasp the humor yet, but
Silly Sally – I remember memorizing this book as a kid. It’s a fun book to read with terrific rhyme and rhythm. Malcolm has been keeping it in bed with him each night (and I often hear him giggling over it after we’ve put them to bed!).
The Monster at the End of This Book – This was one of my favorite books as a kid. We bought a copy for the boys a few years ago, but they recently re-discovered it. I love books that are interactive. And this book gets tons of laughter from the boys.
How to Dig a Hole to the Other Side of the World – This was one of my husband’s favorite books as a child. The illustrations are great, and my boys love the schematic of the not-spaceship. Plus it introduce them to a lot of geography terms in an interesting way.
What We’ve Been Watching
I haven’t done nearly as much reading this month as I would have liked. But Tim and I did find a new sci-fi show on Netflix to watch after the boys go to bed. It’s called Dark Matter, and it’s from the creators of Stargate. We are loving the characters and story so far, and it’s awesome to have found a fun sci-fi show to watch.
The science club at Tim’s school put on a movie night last night, and we watched the first Back to the Future. Sean slept through most of it, but Malcolm really enjoyed it.
