Just when I think probably no one is actually reading these words I write here, someone will notice when I skip something. One of our readers pointed out that I missed out on posting my recommendations from week two of the Read The World Summer Book Club. I had been planning to do it, but got a little behind over the holiday weekend so I'll combine our week 2 & 3 lists into one post.
Just a note, don't forget about audio books! Some of the titles are out of stock right now, but can be enjoyed for less money AND without waiting as an audiobook. You can even try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks (yours to keep even after the trial period).
Week 2: Africa
Overall, Anna Hibiscus is a long time favorite of ours and this was a fun reason to pull it off of the shelf again. Honey, Honey, Lion and Brining the Rain to Kapiti Plain have also been long-loved here by the preschool crowd. Listening for Lions wins the award for the favorite new book by the big kids and Mom loved Two Ways to Count to Ten and Rain School!
Week 3: Europe
The Europe book lists felt really long and I had a harder time picking titles because fewer were familiar to me. The world wars are a common theme and while it's an important one, we haven't done modern European history and I didn't want to turn it into a mini unit on WWI&II. I decided to focus on mixing up countries of origin across age levels when I made my choices.
I finally bit the bullet and joined Instagram, be sure to find me over there @workandplaydaybyday! I foresee lots of Montessori homeschool photography in my future. I also created a Pinterest board full of projects and ideas for the book club. I probably won't get around to most of them, but maybe you will?! I also have book recommendations from week 1 in case you missed it!
