Library Time 21

It's Saturday again already so that means another look at what we've been reading. I read this great book - Some Hats, Some Girls and Hitler by Trudi Kanter. I bought this with my birthday gift card and only paid $6.00 - bonus. It's about a lady who was a milliner in Vienne and how she got her husband and parents out of Austria.

On to the rest of the family...
15-year-old daughter - Jane Austen: Her Life, Her Times,  Her Novels by Janet Todd. This is one of those books that are fairly popular now that have reproductions of letters, a page from a manuscript, etc.

13-year-old son - World War II by Sean Callery. This book is so fascinating. If you have a child interested in World War II this would make an excellent gift. They also give you websites you can go to to learn more.

Product Details

11-year-old son - Witness to World War II by Karen Farrington. Our boys were given these two World War II books this week so we've been hearing a lot about the War.
10-year-old daughter - Isabella, Girls from Many Lands
8-year-old daughter - Emma on Thin Icing by Coco Simon. This a Cupcake Diaries book.
6-year-old son - The Biggest Bear by Lynn Ward. This has always been a favourite in our home. Who wouldn't want to have a pet bear who is a gentle giant but the neighbours don't like because he eats everything?

3-year-old son - Carl at the Dog Show by Alexandra Day. We love the Carl books about the dog who looks after a little girl. There are generally only printed words at the beginning and end of the story. In between you can make up your own story based on the gorgeous illustrations. Lots of adventures so the story can be very exciting.

What does your reading list look like this week?
