Winter Book Lists

When I asked family, friends, and strangers a few poll questions about what they would like to see included on this blog, one of the most popular ideas was “book suggestions”.

So I have organized our reads for this season into two very simple categories (“Mom + Dad”  and “Kids”). Our little one is a first grader and his list contains his independent reads as well as books we read to him. This does not include any short stories, picture books, etc. Please leave me a comment if you would like to see a list of those children’s books and the baby books we are using at the moment for our littlest.
