Current Read-Alouds


These are a few of the books we enjoyed this week.

"Officer Buckle and Gloria"
Peggy Rathmann

I guess we're the last people on the planet to read this book. We thought it was very cute. Robbie enjoyed reading all of the safety tips on the inside of the front and back covers. He laughed heartily as Gloria performed in secret while helping the children to learn safety tips.

"The Elves and the Shoemaker"
(A Little Golden Book)

We've had this classic fairy tale for a long time and I can't believe we've never read it. It was a great bedtime book for Robbie. (I believe he's hoping that some elves come in to clean his room since it didn't wasn't properly tidied before he went to bed.)

"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"
Lewis Carroll

We're still reading this, but it's taken a backseat to some other things. We're in no rush, though. It's definitely initiating lots of questions and conversations about some rather odd topics, though. I think that's my favorite part. :)

I always initiate a mini-narration from him when we're finished so that I know he understood the story and we discuss the story during and after reading it. Of course, we read more than these, but many have been listed before, will be blogged about at a later date or weren't worth a report.

  1. Officer Buckle and Gloria is fun! I hope you're making notes on all the conversations you're having regarding Alice in Wonderland--that would mkae a very interesting post! So glad you linked up this week!

  2. I love the cover art on the elf book - it's very inviting.
