February Book Roundup

This month was a bit slower in terms of how many books we read, but we still collectively churned through over 10,000 pages of dragons, wizards, sword-wielding mice, science fiction, super-powered squirrels, history, and a dash of Greek mythology.

H spend most of the month reading through Harry Potter. I’ve read the entire series to them in the past and she’s read the first couple on her own when she was a new reader, but this time she’s really caught the Wizarding-world bug. N has been continuing his journey through the land of dragon-filled Pyrriah and finished the first five book story arc. A, meanwhile, took a deep dive into Redwall and immersed himself in some of the best books the series has to offer. And for a change of pace after reading the kids a history of the D-Day invasion, this month I read them The Lightning Thief, the first epic and hilarious adventure of Percy Jackson.

“The first five books of Wings of Fire tell an epic story. I like how Sutherland describes the varied landscapes, and the different dragons because I can really image what they look like.

– N, age 10

“Fun, imaginative, and perfect for anyone who loves mystery and magic. Harry Potter hooks you immediately and won’t let go until you finish the series.”

H – Age 9

“Mariel of Redwall is full of adventure, humor, and great descriptions. I love it so much that I will definitely read it again.”

A, age 9
