What We Are Reading This Week....

We have some new reading this week!  We love the Big Head series and we decided to learn more about Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant!  Biographies have really been our thing recently and the girls really enjoy this book series.  They also compliment very nicely with our History Pockets we have been working on for the last couple of weeks!

In addition to the Big Head books Kayley and Maggie both enjoyed reading Vinnie and Abraham, a true story about a young woman who carved a gorgeous statue of Abraham Lincoln out of marble.

And Civil War Sub, the true story of the Hunley submarine.

For fun both girls read Abe Lincoln's Hat on their own.  A silly story about how Abe kept important notes in his hat until the day he lost them!

Kayley has also been reading Sassafras Science Vol 3.  She adores these books...they are kind of like a science version of Magic Tree House.  They are actually a full science curriculum but Kayley enjoyed the 1st book so much that I went ahead and purchased 2 & 3 so that she could read them for fun.

 As for me...I have a book review coming up next week and so for this week I am reading Will My child Be Ready?  You can watch for this book review coming up in August!

We sure love our books around here!!!  Thanks for stopping by!
