Summer Reading Challenges

Every summer my kids look forward to participating in the summer reading program at our local library. I love to read; my youngest son is learning how to read, my daughter loves to be read to – my oldest son – a very reluctant reader. But reading is so important to me, and my oldest loves to earn the rewards that come from reading. We also started doing the Barnes and Noble’s Summer Reading program. My oldest is eager to earn the Origami Yoda book which is on the list of books to be earned from reading.

I remember when I was young, I was always reading. I loved the classics. And exploring history through books too. Shakespeare to Jane Austen, H.G. Wells and Dickens – what can I say? I just love to read!  And I really want to see my kids have a love of learning and reading to.


So this summer Momma is reading:  The Awakening of Miss Prim, A Cluster of Camphire, Parenting Unchained, The Easy Way to Start, Manage and Grow a Christian Homeschool Group, Keep it Shut, and When Children Love to Learn.


I also just signed up as a consultant for Usbourne Books and am excited to share my love of reading and learning with others. They have such amazing, high quality books. And I love the idea of sharing and growing a business based around literature 🙂 Check it out and maybe wanna host a party (online or off) with me?    🙂


What are the kids rading?  Well we are working through some great ones together:

Orphs of the Woodland is so much fun! Lots of different hands on activities for learning within this book. I actualy reviewed this one here with the Schoolhouse Review Crew earlier and we are STILL enjoying it!


We are also reading The Green Ember and starting Treasure Island. My oldest son is reading, on his own, about Rober E Lee and also the Middle Ages. So we have a few books on these two topics we are reading together. He is reading a couple Minecraft books too, on his own.


What are you reading this summer?


I am a God loving and fearing Apostolic Pentecostal - All about Holiness, a tongue Talking Homeschooling Mommy of Two AWESOME little men and two darling little ladies, with a precious one in Jesus arms too. I love to study His word, and the stories and histories that go along with it. Seeking truth at all expense and learning so much as we go along. We are truly blessed to homeschool - blessed that we may school our children for such a small cost. I believe in the power of the name of Jesus and the power of His people when they come together in prayer. Standing firm and speaking out! There is nothing that I seek more than His kingdom and the joys that follow Him! Ultra conservative, growing Jesus follower, mommy to two awesome boys, one precious little girl- with a great family and a wonderful life that I am so blessed to have! Living and loving as best I can, with the Lord-Holy Ghost filled and speaking in tongues-WOW!
