We’ve read some great books this month that we can’t wait to share with you. You may notice my Final Friday monthly feature is running on a Tuesday this month. That’s because last Friday I had blessing of posting a piece on Kelly Cox at Home called Four Reasons Kids Should Work. Check out Kelly’s blog for some great posts about debt-free living and a Christian perspective on all things related to home life.
Final Friday Family Faves: September 2015 Edition
Hunter’s pick was the 2015 Hugo Award Winner by Cixin Liu titled The Three-Body Problem. While the Chinese-language edition has been around for seven years, Ken Liu’s English translation was published in 2014, making the work accessible to many new readers (including my hubby).
Leslie’s September favorite is 52 Things Kids Need From a Mom by Angela Thomas. Be sure to check out the review I wrote of this heartwarming book earlier this month.
Archie (8) is a big fan of Alien Invasion in my Backyard by Ruben Bolling (An EMU Club Adventure). I’m sure we’ll be checking out other books from this series. He loved it because it has a not-so-scary alien invasion! I appreciated it because I found the kids to be generally respectful children who obeyed their parents even when the parents made them to do things they didn’t want to do (like include little sister in the club).
Grace (6) is eagerly re-reading the Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten series by Joseph Slate. Although Grace is in first-grade now, she still loves these clever books (and the funny parrot noises we make when reading each page that features Miss Bindergarten’s pet bird). I’m normally not a fan of alphabet books, but the author sneaks the letters in so cleverly I actually enjoy the alphabet name alliteration!
Grant (17 months) loves the hot-off-the-press The Berenstain Bears’ Sleepy Time Book by Mike Berenstain. My daughter, Grace, touched my heart by using part of the gift certificate she earned from the Family Christian Stores summer reading program to buy her baby brother a book. The Sleepy Time Book is the latest-greatest Berenstain Bear book in our large collection!
