Summer reading

We're in for a long hot summer here in Florida, but I've been finding ways to keep my little guy, busy and out of the summer heat!

One of the things we started this Summer, along with our Story-time group at PBK, is a Summer Reading Challenge. Each week at story-time, we check off a new book from their in-store reading list and sometimes make a craft to go along with the story. To take this one step further for Jack, {and to give us another fun thing to do} we head over to the bookstore or library and I let Jack pick a new book he doesn't own for us to read together. He gets a kick out of picking the book, "all by himself!" and then we get a snack from Starbucks together!

It's a Win-Win! He's happy reading all his 'stories' & I'm happy with my Shaken-Ice Tea-Lemonade...yum!

Take a look at the PBK reading list & our own list growing weekly below... be sure to stay tuned for pictures of our story-time crafts and pictures of our bookstore dates on Instagram! :)

Jack's first pick, Dr. Seuss classic!

Jack's Summer Reading List so far:  

  1. Oh, the Places You'll Go! (B&N Exclusive Edition)
  2. First Dog
  3. The Grouchy Ladybug Board Book
  4. Do Pirates Take Baths?
We are adding to this list each week, so if you have suggestions for your favorite books to read, please share! Happy Summer to you all!

Thank you for reading! xoxo, Natassja
