Reading List

The following list of books is organized by the date I returned them to the library. There is overlap between the two children, obviously, since they both tend to read most of what we check out. Maya says she has actually read all the bird books, which makes her much more of an authority on bird care than I can claim to be. Ziad's attention has been largely focused on Harry Potter lately, which explains why the number of library books he's read as dropped off dramatically. So really this is just a partial reading list, but I think it demonstrates adequately that even though they are homeschooled, they are literate (and at or above grade level).

Ziad’s reading list:

October 24
Parrots and Parakeets as Pets
Keeping Unusual Pets: Cockatiels
Growing Up With Science (Illustrated Encyclopedia of Invention) v.2
Angelina’s Halloween (Angelina Ballerina series)
Arty Facts: Animals and Art activities
The Unicorn’s Secret 8: The Journey Home

October 30
Fire and Wings: Dragon Tales from East and West
Young Cam Jansen and the Substitute Mystery (Level 2)
Space Emergency: Astronauts in Danger
My Parakeet

November 6
Secrets of Droon: Under the Serpent Sea

Arty Facts: Animals and Art activities
Young Cam Jansen and the Substitute Mystery (Level 2)

Awesome! How did Maya like "Little Women"? That's our current read aloud. I'm hoping to be finished with it in time to watch the movie this season (The Winona Ryder version).

I know where to go if I need any info on birds.

I'm glad you'all are reading... I have not had any energy to even crack a book open...
