Comments for What My Children Are Reading

What My Children Are Reading: 05/28/09

The Well-Read Child blog is starting a new meme where we are to talk about what our children are reading. For my two, books that feature the alphabet, cats, or monsters are the ones that keep showing up at bed time.

My oldest is also reading books at school. He has read Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball by Judi and Ron Barrett, The Lion and the Mouse by Aesop, and Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! by Dr. Seuss.

At home our night time reads include Grumpy Cat by Britta Teckentrup, Monsters Vs. Aliens: Team Monster by Gail Herman, Beware of Tigers by Dave Horowitz, and Kittens First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes.

I love the cover of Grumpy Cat. I've never heard of Beware of Tigers. I'm adding it to my list.

Grumpy Cat is a cute book about friendship and great for any kid who likes cats. Like you I hadn't heard of Beware of Tigers until my son decided to buy it. I still need to review both on my blog.

My little one recently listened to Kitten's First Full Moon, too. It's adorable. I love all your picture book picks.

Kitten's First Full Moon is a cute book and very popular with my kids right now. Most of the books I posted are ones my son and daughter picked for us to read.
