Read-Aloud Log April/May 2013

Our in-house librarian and cute little book worm thought the picks from the past couple of months were great!


March/April Little Kid picks:

Boynton, Sandra. Are You a Cow?

DK Publishing. Baby Surprises!

Fujikawa, Gyo. Mother Goose.

Katz, Karen. Baby Loves Spring: A lift the flap book.

Laden, Nina. Peek a who?

Mackenzie, Carine. (Learn about God series) (God is faithful, God is kind, God has power, God knows everything, God never changes)

Stinson, Kathy. Red is Best.

Wilson, Sarah. Love and Kisses.


Mommy Favorites:

Clarkson, Sally. Ministry of Motherhood.

Hertzberg, Jeff. Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day.

Hunt, Gladys. Honey for a Child’s Heart: The Imaginative Use of Books in Family Life.

Macaulay, Susan Schaeffer. For the Family’s Sake: The Value of Home in Everyone’s Life.

Montgomery, L.M. Anne of Green Gables.

Wilder, Laura Ingalls. Little House in the Big Woods & Little House on the Prairie.


I decided a couple of months ago to start rereading some classic children’s book and believe it or not I had never read Anne of Green Gables before. It was such a good book and I loved rereading my favorite Little House books:)

Favorites for me included Ministry of Motherhood, For the Family’s Sake, and our new favorite pizza dough recipe came from the cookbook above. Seriously, that book on pizza has transformed our dinners. There is a GF recipe and a regular one and you can make the dough and keep it for up to 14 days in the fridge making pizza whenever you like. Amazing.

For Elizabeth I would say the favorites were Mother Goose, Love and Kisses, and any of the Carine Mackenzie books. The board books by Mackenzie are some of the best I’ve come across in accurately conveying the character of God in a Biblical and yet child friendly way. I’ve found myself encouraged after reading through them as well.


Any favorites these past few months?
