Read Aloud Challenge

Reading out loud to my kids is something we do for entertainment and to learn. My friend Debra blogs at Footprints in the Butter has started her Read Aloud Challenge again. Every week I will share with you what I have been reading out loud to my kids or any books on CD we have been listening to.

 

My girls love the Imagination Station series and we just finished reviewing book 8 & 9 and I have a set to giveaway. The giveaway is until October 31 if you would like to enter. In this series of books we get to follow cousins Patrick and Beth on their adventures through time on the Imagination Station. These books are written for children ages 7 and up, but we all love them.

Before reading the Imagination Station books we read the Collector's Edition 7 Favorite 19-Century Children's Stories. This is a collection of stories published in the 1800's by the American Tract Society. We received this book to review with the Crew, so be watching for my review of it in November.


Another review item that will be up the first part of November is Journeys of Faithfulness. This book includes stories of life and faith for young christian women. This book isn't just for young christian women unless you think I am still young. Sarah Clarkson challenges today's young women in their relationship with Christ by looking at heroines in the Bible.




I really like the Childhood of Famous Americans books. This series shows us how famous people grew up & what they did, tonight we finished Dwight D. Eisenhower Young Military Leader. We learned a lot of facts about this man when he was young. He was raised with family values and determination, and was successful at his money making projects and jobs. We thought it was very interesting how he changed his name. He was born as David Dwight but went by the name Dwight or Ike. When he enrolled in West Point he signed his name with Dwight first since that is what he always went by & that was what he was called for the rest of his life.


I received a set of books on CD to review & we have been listening to them the last couple of weeks. The Sugar Creek Gang are recordings of stories that were first published in 1939. We get to follow a group of young boys who call themselves the Sugar Creek Gang on their adventures.


I think that sums up our reading this week except some library books that Alaina likes me to read to her. If you would like to see what other people are reading to their kids head on over to Footprints in the Butter. If you want to blog about what you are reading you can add your post to her linky each week.
