February and March Reading

So sorry we skipped a month so I have to combine two month together.

Miss C's favorite picks...

We have read every one of the Elephant and Piggie books!

Any Barbie book is a hit but this one is her favorite.

We read all the Llama Llama books, for some reason this was her favorite :)

Hugs from Pearl a super cute story!

Mr C's picks ...

Loved Hugo and we loved Wonder Struck. Two stories 40 years apart, one in pictures and one in words, till the merge together!

One of Brian's books from when he was a kid. Mr C loves this series all about a Dog and a Cat with a wild imagination. The adventures they have together trying to solve the cats latest theories.

The latest in The Magic Tree House Series, always a hit with both my Kids.

Anything Zelda is a hit for Mr. C

 The first kids book from the Author of Hugo and Wonder Struck

Non Fiction pick- 

My Picks...
What I read in February was The year of the Fog, Everyone is Beautiful, One Moment One Morning, and The Midwife's Confession. My Favorite was The Midwife's Confession and One Moment One Morning. 

March Reads..

**** Magic hour I really enjoyed reading, about a young girl who was kidnapped and then escaped after living in the woods with wolves. Then the women who "escapes" her own troubles by saving her.

***I liked this book and its tale of two twins who are forced to finally come together and really see each other as they work through their own new twist and turns in life.
 **The reading promise a story of a Father who is a Elementary school Librarian and his fourth grade daughter. They make a deal to read for one hundred nights straight and when that goes so well the keep up the streak till the day she goes to collage.  I thought this would be a good book to read but found it very slow and kind of boring. That being said it did encourage me to keep reading to my kids.
*****- Loved it
****- really enjoyed 
***- Liked it
**- it was ok
*- don't bother
