Reading Together: April 2014
Heyo! Welcome to this month’s Reading Together shenanigans. Reading Together is a regular series of posts about books I’m sharing with my 3-year-old, Lorelei, and her baby sister, Mira. Below is a video highlighting our favorite recent reads and there is also an extended booklist below. We’d love to hear about what books you’re reading together with your kids, whether they are your own little hooligans, grandkids, a classroom, or storytime group! Please share in the comments!
