March is National Reading Month. Reading has always been a joy for me and I love being able to share it with my kids now.
We have many physical books and use our library often, but we are in a new era of technology. As much as I love the feel of a “real” book in my hands, I know that my kids love to use the technology and E-readers are able to hold a lot more books than any bag I can carry!
Amazon is having a special for the month of March. Their Kindle E-reader is $20 off! For only $59 (at the time of this posting) you are able to get a great E-reader that is lighter than a paperweight and has a screen that looks like a real page from a book.
Speaking of books…there are so many e-books available now! And Kindle Unlimited lets you borrow from over 700,000 of those books! With that many books, you will never run out of options! I want to share some of our favorite books with you.
Although Moe Man is 14 now, he still really enjoys the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Collection. He has read every one of them more than once. However, I made him find a book that was more at his reading level and he decided to start reading Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back . He is really loving this book and keeps telling me I have to read it after him. After his finishes that one, he is planning on reading Lincoln: How Abraham Lincoln Ended Slavery in America: A Companion Book for Young Readers to the Steven Spielberg Film (How Abraham Lincoln Ended Salvery in America) while watching the film.
Ray Ray is my Minecraft child. Any book that has to do with Minecraft, he is all about. We have read The Quest for the Diamond Sword: An Unofficial Gamers Adventure, Book One , which was an awesome easy read before bed! We are starting book two in this series, which is The Mystery of the Griefers Mark: An Unofficial Gamers Adventure, Book Two . These books are wonderful for his imagination and give him something to build in Minecraft…since he is remaking the story.
Little Miss…well what book doesn’t she like?! She is my puppy girl and any book, like National Geographic Little Kids Look and Learn: Dogs (Look & Learn) , are the ones she grabs from the library. However, she really enjoyed when I read aloud Mr. Popper's Penguins . And daddy made her a book when he was on the road before and she loves to listen to him read it to her, even when he isn’t home. The Counting Kisses: A Kiss & Read Book book we have is one of those where daddy recorded himself reading it. We really love these kinds and being able to have daddy read a book even when he isn’t home to read it!
My favorite books that I am reading right now are the NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women for Women. This is perfect for my personal quiet time each day. Since Moe Man will be in High School…I have been reading How to How to Homeschool 9th and 10th Grades: Simple Steps for Starting Strong (The HomeScholar's Coffee Break Book series 28) (perfect resource). And during all this mommy madness, I find some time to read In Between (A Katie Parker Production) (Volume 1) for my own personal free reading time.
