Lit for Kids

Charlott's Web

Judy Blum Books


Pippi Longstocking

These are the stories that I remember having my nose in while growing up. I suppose I have read a few as a grown up too. These books gave me a love of fantasy and still sit on my book shelves. Today while I was doing my homework (to be posted this weekend.) I ran across these titles that you might enjoy.

"Daddy Drinks Because You Cry" is a family favorite. I just finished reading Charlotte's Web to the kids. They loved it.
(I thought they were too young for
"It Burns When I Pee, Charlie Brown")

Ok seriously? I really enjoyed all of those books growing up. I mean come on the pop up book, was the greatest, very informative.

As a home school mom, I'm so glad to get some new ideas for school reading. Keep it fresh, that's what I say.

Hummm.... I wonder what the other teachers would say if I started reading aloud to my studetns some of the books from the second list? Even better, what would the parents say? ;) Perhaps they'd realize that in some cases, the truth hurts!
p.s. Love the haircutting blog... I'm in need of a trim. Can I stop by?!

I have Charlotte's web on my shelf and still have not started it. I'm such a slacker.

I read Charlotte's Web as a kid and just got finished reading it to Allyson. She loved it! :)

Becca, Your humore is a little sick and twisted sometimes but I LIKE IT! Very funny. We have to laugh at tragic situations sometimes just to stay sane.
