What are you reading? Wednesday
I'm still reading Natsuo Kirino's Real World. I am enjoying it, but slowly.
My kids lost their copy of the Magic Treehouse: Midnight on the Moon, but recently I found it. Good timing too, with all the talk about Monday's eclipse.
We are also delving into soccer books as I have decided to make next week a soccer theme on Perogies & Gyoza. Any recommended soccer books for me?
What are you reading this week?

No time for reading other than fb, twitter and various blogs. Does that count as reading?ReplyDelete
It better, that's most of what I have too!Delete
Are you looking for novels or picture books for your soccer theme? You should definitely try and find Peter Sis' picture book "Madlenka Soccer Star", it's really good (all his Madlenka books are), I love his spreads in these books, there's a preview on Amazon, here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Madlenka-Soccer-Star-Peter-S%C3%ADs/dp/0374347026ReplyDelete
I just finished King Matt the First by Janusz Korczak which was really great (reviewed it on my blog) and now I'm still listening to the audiobook for The Midnight Zoo and started reading Alice Hoffman's The Dovekeepers. Have a great week!
Kind Matt the First sounds great!Delete
I reviewed Madlenka Soccer Star last month, that's what started the soccer book craze in our house!
I am looking for picture books and early readers, nothing that is longer than a Magic Treehouse book I guess. Thanks! Hope you have a great week too!
I just finished Of Poseidon. Eh... there were things I loved about it, and things that left me scratching my head. Can't wait to review it.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to your review too, I want to find out what the headscratchers are!Delete
I am reading an ebook about positive parenting and guidance and also just started a Jeffery Archer novel.ReplyDelete
The boys are enjoying one of their Hairy Maclairy books and Noah is into "A color of his own" right now as well. I recently pulled out the books I have that touch on toilet training or using the bathroom including one by Karen Katz and also Everybody Poops by Taro Gomi....my guess is that is what we will be reading a lot of over the next couple of weeks as I want to start toilet training Noah. If he will let me! If he won`t then oh well I am fine to keep changing nappies.
As for soccer books- we don`t own this one but I read a review somewhere else about a book that Pele helped write. I think it was called "For the love of soccer". Had to look up the name of this one but the other one we had at the school I worked at last was called "Soccer Sam" by Jean Marzollo - liked the fact that it was a multicultural story.
Good luck with potty training! Crossing my fingers for you.Delete
Thanks for the suggestions, I'll look them both up.
