I don't know how many of you are big readers like I am, but just for fun - What are your favorite books? What about your kids?

I love
The Outlander series of books by Diana Gabaldon
The Skystone series by Jack Whyte
Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver
Mrs Pollifax books by Dorothy Gilman

Alexa loves
All things Olivia by Ian Falconer
Zen Shorts by John Muth
All Dr Suess of course
The Napping House by Audrey Wood (I think - just doing this from memory)

Also I just read Fancy Nancy at the bookstore and am planning on getting some of these for Alexa. Very cute and fun.

I also found a good website for book lovers called where you can enter all the books you've read, review them, look at the reviews of others etc. If anyone joins that one I am on there with the username brandyann.

I am looking forward to reading some of your favorites. It seems these days that my reading gets put aside. I mostly read kids books!!! Imagine that...;)
Fischer loves the Sandra Boynton books like Pajama Time, Oh My Oh My Oh Dinasaurs and other books from her. He also loves the auther Laura Numeroff. She writes If you give a Mouse a Cookie. There is also If you give a Pig a Party, If you give a Moose a Muffin and so on.
Happy reading...!!!

I love mystery books and classic books. But sadly, my reading has been halted due to kids and other things to do. I read my bible everyday for a devotion which helps me with my day. As for the kids....they love all the Dr. Seuss books. McKenzie likes Za Za's Baby Brother by Lucy Cousins who also writes all the Maisy books. McKillop likes any books with dogs, ducks or fire engines. We read everyday and love every minute of it. That is my favorite part of the day....sitting down with each one and reading. McKenzie is learning to read so will be interesting to see if her favorites change.

BTW, I too love Diana Gabaldon books. What a story teller.

I am currently reading James Harriot books which I have enjoyed very much!!! When I feel like learning something I have been reading"Read Right" by Dee Tadlock. It's about helping your children learn to read...maybe I'll do a post on it someday...

I have been reading The Laura Ingalls Wilder Books to my kids and we have been enjoying that too. They also like Jan Brett books, Dr S., and ANY books about horses, dump trucks or bunnies... We also get Highlights and Ranger Rick magazines in the mail... Kyla is reading now and enjoys "The Magic Treehouse Books..."
