It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 6-27-16


 My 7 year old son, Sam and I are enjoying books together this summer. We love listening to audio books that we borrow from the library while we drive. We are also reading a series at bedtime. He reads a book of his choice that he can read on his own and then I read a chapter from the series we are enjoying. It is a great way to share our love of books! Check out our favorites this week!

Books we finished this week: The 13 story treehouseThe 26 story treehouse

I’ve been reading this series to Sam. It is so silly, fun and creative!

Audio books we finished this week:

Alvin Ho 1

Alvin ho 2

The audio books for Alvin Ho are hilarious. I love that they went with a child reading the books. He does an awesome job. My son is afraid of a few things…okay a lot of things…so this was a perfect series for him to listen to with me. My son was laughing so much. It was great fun for both of us!

Books we are reading this week:

The 39 story treehouse

You guessed it! We are continuing on with the series. I’m reading a chapter a night to Sam at bedtime.


I’m currently reading Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard by Jonathan Auxier for the #Vbcbooks chat in July! This book is such a great fantasy adventure book! I love the main character Sophie Quire because she is a book mender and lover of books.

Great News! Jonathan Auxier is going to join our #vbcbooks chat on July 18th at 9 pm EST on Twitter! Please read this fabulous fantasy book and join us in July!

So what great books have you read lately?!

    The Treehouse books look like fun, & I have a 7 year old granddaughter whom I think will like them, too. Sophie Quire will be one I’ll look for. Thanks, Niki!

  4. I have a friend who loves the Andy Griffiths books. I really need to give them a try. I think it’s awesome that you and your son can share of love of books! Have a great week!

    I started Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Albertalli today. Terrific voice! The Treehouse & Alvin Ho books are both very fun. Definitely great laughing with 7-year-olds!

    I loved The Night Gardener, but wasn’t so enchanted by Auxier’s Peter Nimble. Still I will give Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard a try.

      Thanks Carrie! Yes! 4th and 5th graders will love the Treehouse books! Also, I recommend all of Raina’s books. Ghosts is coming out this fall. They love her graphic novels!
