Reading Aloud Challenge, April 7

My friend Debra over at Footprints in the Butter started hosting a weekly Read Aloud Challenge & since I love to read aloud to my kids I thought it would be very easy to join in.

She asked the questions:

What are your goals, and how have you been doing? Why is this important to you?

I think it is very important to read to my kids everyday. We get to spend time together and we learn so much no matter what book we are reading. Sometime the girls will just curl up in a blanket to listen, other times they like to color. We always read at night after our family devotions & sometimes we accidentally stay up way to late!
I don't really set goals for our read aloud time, we have a very long list of books we want to read. We usually take turns picking them out.
I also encourage my kids to read everyday to themselves and some times to each other.

This week we have read:

The Hardy Boys #19 Mystery of the Disappearing Floor
The Hardy Boys #20 Mystery of the Flying Express
I picked up the first 5 Hardy Boy books at our Library book sale in the fall & gave them to my girls for Christmas. They have really enjoyed them and we are now ready for #21
Andi's Scary School Days by Susan K. Marlow
The Eskimo Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins
Plus several picture books

We are currently reading:
The Japanese Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins

School Read Aloud:
Nutrition 101
Who is God? And Can I really Know Him?

You can visit Footprints in the Butter to see what other people are reading.
What are you reading this week?

You have read quite a bit this week! I think some of my children might enjoy me reading Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew books. I hadn't thought of those. Thanks for sharing!

My oldest son enjoys Hardy Boys. His daddy read them as a child and that sparked his intrest. I'm glad you mentioned these, we may need to add these in for read alouds one day soon. That's really impressive to have read the first 21 since November. You certainly read more than our family.

Lisa -- this list is great. :)

I really ought to pull out some Hardy Boys books too. My dad used to read those aloud to us when we were camping. The only time my parents really read aloud was on camping trips -- maybe why I have such fond memories of camping. :)

Thanks for joining in.
