Books. Books. Books.







Kristiana just finished The Theft and the Miracle by Rebecca Wade, and gives it four stars!



William’s loves a good Spidey adventure.





The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.
– Mark Twain







The library is one of the best things going in our town. We usually visit several times a week . . . and we keep a large wicker basket filled in our den with all our selections.  The library . . . that’s where we borrow our movies, that’s where we go to story time, that’s where we do our crafting . . . and usually, once a week through the winter, that’s where we do our homeschool . . . just for a change of scenery.  We are getting a great new addition to our library, so by next spring there will be even more to do at the library. My son, Daniel, has often said , “Mom. I can’t wait until I can drive. I’m going to go to the library all by myself and just read in peace and quiet!”

Carl used to say to our emerging readers, “You just wait. As you learn to read, the whole world will open up to you!” 









And Caroline reads all the Dick and Jane stories she can get her hands on.


Carl’s summer pick is The Shack by William Young . . . 

Kathy’s is The Mark of the Lion trilogy by Francine Rivers . . . 

Daniel’s is Witness  by Whittaker Chambers . . . 

and  Tim’s is anything by Jeff Shaara.


Leave your summer favorites in the comments for us! We are always looking for new good reads.

The reading of all good books is like conversation with the finest men of past centuries.

– Descartes

  1. I L O V E these photos. Who would of thought to of taken a camera into a library and taken photos of kids reading books?!

  2. Jenna,
    Steal this idea if you like it!! I love the book thing, too, because it really captures each personality at a unique time in his/ her life. I asked the kids to pick their favorite stories, and half the fun was watching them try to narrow their piles down. I’ve loved seeing your Flckr site . . . you have such a great eye! Maybe someday we’ll get to shoot together. Fun.

    Hi there–

    I am re-reading all of Austen and Bronte this summer and somehow they are better the older one gets. But I also admit one of my contemporary favorites, Fortune’s Rocks, by Anita Shreve. Happy Reading in the dog days!!
