HOW did it get to be the end of JUNE? Oh, wow.
Well, this week is going to look much better than last week, but really, we still did not do a whole lot of reading aloud. Mostly read to the little two. William slept a lot this week, making up for last week no doubt.
Most of our reading this week was for the Master Books Summer Reading Program. Richard and Trina both did their three books for June. William and Thomas are going to read three in July. Thomas loses credit for the one he did in June, but that is okay.
Answers for Kids, Volume 1. I read this to Richard and Trina over a couple of days. This was one of Richard's books for the summer reading program. Various older kids listened to parts of it too. It was fun... Richard and Trina insisted on giving the answers before I could read them, and they did a pretty good job of it.
Noah's Floating Animal Park. This one was as fun (actually even moreso) than the one we read last week about The Fall. The rhyming text is so much fun, and it really does a fabulous job of drawing you in. This one counted for Trina for the reading program. Cute, cute, cute.
Answers for Kids, Volume 2. Connor read this whole book to all his siblings in one sitting. I love the format of the book... small (maybe 5"x5") questions from kids, with ages listed, and an answer that includes a Bible verse. We have owned these two books for quite a while, and Connor has read them himself, but I never sat down to read them. And I don't know why, but I assumed Richard and Trina were too young. Anyway, this was Richard's third book for the Master Book program for June... and he wants to get Volumes 3 and 4.
The Not So Super Skyscraper. Yep, third book in a series, and third book to count for Trina's participation in the Master Books program. I really enjoyed this one. Richard proceeded to build a Tower of Babel out of Legos...
We also started working through our summer science. Living Fossils. This is a review book, so I'll have more about it soon. Connor, William and Thomas are doing this. So far, I'm not loving it, but I know that will change. We have the first book in the series, and liked that. I've flipped ahead, and I know we'll enjoy it. Just not yet.
Bombus the Bumblebee. Read this to Trina. Will be reviewing it later today (I hope!) so I'm not going to say more...
Plans for this coming week? With the long weekend, I just don't know. It may be a rather light week...
did your week go? Sign the linky to link up your reading aloud post

having you here...

this turned into a linky thing, check here.
My two younger kids love The Answers book for Kids. These all sound like fun books. I will be looking for your review on Living fossils, that sounds like something my kids would enjoy. Thanks for hosting again!
I'm a little late and just posted. We have never read The Answers for Kids books. I wonder if the library would have them.
