Time with my Boys

The boys and I had fun reading some of our favorite books tonight. I figure if I accomplish nothing else, at least my children will grow up with a love of reading. We read a lot. We homeschool and reading is a part of our daily routine both during school and after - quiet times, evenings, and any other time they can pin me down with a book, which is pretty often. We have a few definite favorites. Here are a couple:

For the baby/toddler crowd, my favorite book is I Love You As Much... by Laura Krauss Melmed. When my 17-year-old daughter was little, her favorite was My Goodnight Book by Eloise Wilkin.

My favorite read-aloud for my soon to be 6 year old (which we have loved since we discovered it when he was 3) is How I Spent My Summer Vacation by Mark Teague. Another favorite of mine is Aunt Minnie McGranahan by Mary Skillings Prigger. As you can tell these books are "well-loved." I wouldn't have it any other way :)
