Reading with my boys is probably my favorite part of the day. On these long winter days we find ourselves wandering back to my bedroom and cuddling up in the coziness of the bed. Trying to catch the sunlight streaming in, like cozy cats sunbathing on the windowsill. Our school days have been filled with birds and ocean exploring and we’ve been learning about the American Revolution and George Washington. We are currently learning about the 5th day if creation, birds and ocean animals, in our science curriculum so I’ve centered much of our book list around that theme. Since it is February I can’t forget about Valentine’s Day so I’ve included a few little favorites that correspond a little with that. We have also been working on our creative writing, paragraphs, and report writing skills. We just finished writing short reports about various animals and now we are moving on to our first biography piece on George Washington.
Below I have our February Book Basket List. I’ve also included another playlist for y’all. I wanted something that had more old hymns on it, so I brainstormed some of my all times faves and boy, is it speaking life and joy to my soul. I hope you enjoy it!
Revolutionary War on Wednesday – a fun little read aloud. My boys love this series!
You Belong Here – we adore this book. Just a sweet story and I thought perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Bunny Roo I Love You – I just love Teagan White’s illustrations. This book is super sweet!
Happy Valentine’s Day Mouse – my boys love the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie series no this is a no brainer! They also love the free show they have on prime. Have you watched that?
