What We Are Reading



Froggy was very independent and opinionated at the library this week. She found several books that just had to come home.
Her favorite that she been reading and requesting over and over is Froggy Plays Soccer. As some of you know Froggy wants to play soccer and this book has only added fuel to the fire. She wanders around randomly quoting it. She loves the Dad as assistant coach theory and talks incessantly about how Dad coaches. I think this is her first experience with Dads coaching.
Despite my complaints, we are continuing with the Magic Tree House series with Mummies in the Morning. To take advantage of the history aspects we also checked out Ancient Egypt and Ms. Frizzle's Adventures: Ancient Egypt We have read the Ms. Frizzle book before but Froggy loves all the Magic School Bus books and has read this one several times in just round.
My personal favorite this week is Fox Walked Alone by Barbara Reid. It is the most recent PJ Library book to grace our mailbox. It is a better Noah's Ark story than most. The animals are the characters and Noah even barely makes an appearance. Froggy read this one to herself before I even got a chance to look at it. It is funny and cute yet had an incredible amount of fodder for discussion

  1. We'll be embarking on a study of the ancient world in the fall (late summer), so I'll have to remember to check out Ms. Frizzle (as maddening as I, too, find the MSB books!). My girls LOVE her!

    Froggy is a favorite around here, too.

    Fox Walked Alone looks really good. I'll have to check out this author.

    Thanks for playing this week!

  2. I loved the Froggy books when I taught, but haven't read them with my little one yet. I'll have to look into some.

    I can understand your frustration with Magic Treehouse, but after reading Junie B Jones books with my students, it didn't bother me, and I loved the "real" information they contain.

    (I'm giving you an award on my blog ;-))

  3. Fox Walked Alone, sounds like an interesting book. I will have to look for it.

  4. Ms. Frizzles Adventures!?! I thought we'd read every Magic School Bus book that ever there was - but I've never even seen this set.

  5. Thanks for joining WMCIR! Anna also loves Froggy books a lot. We read Ms Frizzle book a few weeks ago, but it went "whoosh" over daughter head. She is still coming to love both books and TV series - after all, she is only 3.5, and they are a lot more complex both in language and in presentation than, say, Sid the Science Kid.
