Love is in the air! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought a list of children’s book about love was needed. Curl up with your little ones and enjoy these sweet titles that are sure to warm your heart and make them smile.
Your reluctant reader has finished the Harry Potter series…um…now what? Here they are all glassy eyed and full of wonder from their journey into Hogwarts and Diagon Alley. They are simply unwilling to come back to the muggle world, but instead wish to stay in the realm of fantasy and adventure. Well, I too have found myself in this exact position, and I’m positive I’m not alone. Here are 25 books your child should love reading after Harry Potter!
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a favorite in our home. We read it every year at Halloween and our kids never seem to tire of it. This year I decided to do a bit more than read the original classic by Washington Irving. This year I wanted to add in a few activities to go along this famous folk tale.
Welcome to another week in review here at Nourishing My Scholar. This is the Halloween edition so it’s loaded with the children in costumes! Fun right? Of course they don’t need a reason like Halloween to dress up. They don the costumes all year round! Throw in a bit of poetry and some great books and you’ve got our week!
Before our son became the voracious reader that he is today, he was anxious and easily frustrated with each attempt to read. We had a little boy with big ideas that could understand complexities far beyond his years. He knew the sounds that the letters made, but he struggled with letter combinations, blends and sight words. Learning to read is like learning to run. A baby doesn’t just jump up one day and run across the room. Well, I suppose there may be a few exceptions….but generally there’s loads of single steps and loads of falling long before any walking happens. Running comes last. Our son wasn’t interested in the mundane tasks of learning to walk. He wanted to run!
