If I Could Keep You Little… is my idea of an adorable bedtime story! It talks about everything that is wonderful about having a little one – and all the things that are wonderful about watching them grow up, too! The illustrations are absolutely darling!
Nuclear Meltdowns is Mike’s idea of a bedtime story – factual, not something the kids are going to think about on their own, with plenty of questions to start conversations! This book went way over Johnny and Lily’s heads, and Emma was not very happy about Mike’s explanation of fossil fuel. She said, “That is NOT a nice thing to do to dinosaurs and their friends!” She has a point.
I originally intended to read Beezus and Ramona out loud to the kids. I was only a few pages in, however, when Emma harumphed loudly, and said, “Mom, just give it to me!” She has been reading it in bits and pieces ever since. It’s definitely pushing the boundaries of her reading comprehension skills, but she seems to enjoy it.
Mike read Little House in the Big Woods as a bedtime story to the kids for several weeks last year, but then it got set aside for picture books. Emma has decided to read it alongside Beezus and Ramona – she literally reads one chapter of each book. Both about girls roughly her age, but living in incredibly different worlds!
