We’ve mostly wrapped up Yule-school and are back to the grind– which means, hitting the books! *swoon*
To kick off the new year and our second homeschool semester, and to rouse us from our post-holiday stupor, we’re eagerly participating in Sarah Mackenzie’s 31-Day Read Aloud Revival Challenge… Have your kiddos read aloud to you (and of course read aloud to them, also, no matter their age!) for at least 15 minutes each day this month and you can win prizes! It’s not too late to sign up and join in the fun!
It might be the homeschool mom in me, but we always seem to have a very bookish Christmas– this year was no different. Here are some of the books we gifted to the kiddos this year:
links: Greek Myths; Just Being Audrey; Who Was Jacques Cousteau; Emily Windsnap; The Magical World of Amy Lee; Ada Twist, Scientist; Kai-lan’s Great Trip to China; Happy Chinese New Year, Kai-lan; Who Was Bruce Lee; You Were Always in My Heart
I find they’re a fun reflection of our kids’ interests and personalities.
Perhaps you’ve heard of the popular Icelandic tradition of exchanging books on Christmas Eve each year? It seemed to go viral on social media last month, but in case you missed it here’s a link, and another that are sure warm your bibliophilic heart.
