Winter reading list for the whole family
It’s peak reading season around these parts and I’m not the only one curled up with a good book. We each have a stack of stories waiting to be devoured. Perhaps you can check out one of these titles if you’re in the market for a good book!
Farmboy’s reading list:
- Laugh-Out-Loud Jokes for Kids
- Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids
- Knights And Castles (Magic Tree House Research Guide, paper)
Youngsters with a sense of humor will be thrilled with the first two titles, above. My young reader has been entertaining us with jokes since Christmas. And he finds each one exceedingly hilarious! We also happen to be studying the Middle Ages. Side notes about medieval knights make history come alive. Incidentally, if your older girls are reading Beowulf & Grendel, or learning about their ancestors while studying Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian invaders, this Knight Costume Set will help your youngest child participate (actively!) in the conversation. The girls read, he acts the part. It’s highly entertaining!
Girls’ reading list:
- The Wrinkle in Time Quintet Boxed Set (A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, An Acceptable Time)
- The Hidden Treasure of Glaston (Living History Library)
- Black Horses for the King (Magic Carpet Books)
Husband’s reading list:
- A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn – the Last Great Battle of the American West
- Eyewitness to America: 500 Years of American History in the Words of Those Who Saw It Happen
Farmgirl’s reading list:
After traveling west and exploring Yellowstone National Park last summer, my fascination with Montana and Wyoming continues to grow. The first two books, above, were written by Rick Bass. If you have a love for nature, being outdoors, or watching all of those wilderness and Mountain Men reality shows, you will appreciate these books. The descriptions are exquisite! The last on my list — The Complete Novels of Charlotte and Emily Bronte — is one I purchased at a thrift store. I haven’t started it yet, but it’s coming up next!
That’s our latest list. I hope you find something on it that appeals to your sense of adventure. And if you plan to order one of these titles (either hard copy or via Kindle), please consider clicking through these links to order. I earn a few pennies on any order — yes, pennies — but every drop in the bucket eventually adds up to a new title for my ravenous readers!
Happy reading, friends!
