The other night Arora was reading before bed, when I ent to tuck her in she was on the last book. It was “Fancy Nancy’s Splendiferous Christmas“, she was almost to the end and was asking me about what happened. I told her I didn’t know I hadn’t read that one yet, she then look at me and said “Mom you know Fancy Nancy!” like I had forgotten her best friend.
We have made some good friends the past few week with our ramped up reading. Here are some of our favorites:
The Francis books by Russel Hoban: I remember reading these when I was a little girl. These are at the long end for Arora’s attention span. But the messages are so sweet and I love how Francis is always singing.
Fancy Nancy by Jane O’Connor: Easy enough for Arora to read alone but with fancy words through out. Arora’s favorite part is the fancy word list at the end.
The Berenstain Bears by Stan and Jan Berenstain: On the harder end for Arora but we love to get the videos that match the books and read the books first then watch the short cartoon.
Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans: We often get Madeline as “stories” as Arora calls them. A book with a CD in it. We listen to them in the car. They often have songs and little stories in french after the book.
