Reading list for January

Yay!  I made a goal this year to read 2013 books to my kids, and so far we are on track.  I need to read 168 every month.  It’s been a lot of fun, and the goal has pushed me more than I thought it would.  I guess I don’t read as much as I thought I did, and it has taken making a record to realize that.  I was already being lenient to myself by allowing repeats to count, so if I read a book more than once, I count it more than once.  That makes sense since young children learn from repetition.  I have also decided to follow the lead from some of my peers and count each chapter in a chapter book as a “book”, since each chapter takes more time to read than most children’s story books anyway.  This list is a little shy, but we are also going through scripture readers which I won’t count until we finish, so that gives me a little leeway.  This is a fun goal!

Check out my friend Krista’s list:  I recognize the Elephant and Piggie books, but otherwise our lists are very different.  My list was mostly by chance based on what looked good at the library.  There are a lot of books out there!
