We are always looking for books to add to our To Be Read list. We look for books of all levels: picture books, beginner chapter books, middle-grade fiction, and books that busy moms can enjoy. Figuring I can’t possibly be the only one out there who is hunting for good reads for a variety of age levels, I put together a list each month of the books my family has been reading. Sometimes our thoughts on them will be gushy and glowy. Other times they’ll be lukewarm. Either way, we’ll let you know if we think they’re worth your time.
How is it that January feels like the longest month of the year, yet I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that it’s February already? Somehow I can remember very little about the last month, yet I feel like it’s been an epically long time since the holidays. I can’t be alone, can I?
I feel the same way about our January reading. When I sat down to write this list, I had a tough time remembering what was this month and what was last month. I blame it on a long, cold, gray winter—all the days start to bleed together a little. The only bright spot is that it’s perfect reading weather! So let’s get to it.
