The 1000 Book Project, Week 5

If you aren't aware of my 1000 Book Project for my kids, please check out this post.

This week as a pretty productive book week for us.  Of course, we had over 50 books out from the library, so that helps. The counts for this week (L is my 4 year old daughter and C is my 2 year old son):

L - 27 books in the last week (125 / 1000)
C - 16 books in the last week (101 /1000)

My daughter's favorite books were:

Roly Poly Pangolin by Anna Dewdney
As a Llama Llama fan, this was not a big jump for her.

Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert
My daughter actually received this book from her preschool teacher on her last day of school.  They read a lot of Lois Ehlert's books in class and my daughter really enjoys this ABC book (as does my son!).

Spunky Tells All by Ann Cameron
This was actually the first chapter book I tried with my daughter.  We read it over a couple of weeks and she enjoyed it, but I think that was more because of the novelty of it being a chapter book.  We're heading to the more familiar territory of Beverly Cleary next.

And my son's faves for the week were:

Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton
Yes, I know it is a classic, but I had never read it before!  I was afraid it would be too advanced for him, but he seems to like anything with trucks or machines.

Cock-A-Doodle-Doo, Creak, Pop-Pop, Moo by Jim Aylesworth
My son is at an age where he likes the sound of things and this is a great book for that...

Firefighter Ted by Andrea Beaty
This was intended to be more for my daughter, but my son enjoyed it more.  It was simple enough for him to follow the story and he seemed to like the illustrations.
