Special Feature | Eleanor Reads! June Edition

It will come as a surprise to literally no one that Eleanor and I have both done a pretty solid amount of reading when school closed in March due to COVID-19. It's summer now and I officially have a second grader. We will still be working on school material over the summer, but much more leisurely now. I figured we might as well, since most of the places we love to visit during the summer have taken the position of remaining closed until further notice. Besides, I don't feel comfortable taking her out anyway.

Each month I will share the chapter books we've read for the month. It is fun to look back on everything we've read. We've been reading chapter books since before Kindergarten and her attention span as a four year old was definitely something to brag about. Eleanor was born a reader and that makes my heart so, so happy.

For a while Eleanor had grown tired of reading the Magic Tree House books, but a couple weeks ago she decided she wanted to finish the series so here we are!

Do the kiddos in your life have an interest in any of these?

Happy Reading,
Eleanor and Sarah

Tackling the TBR Week 24: June 22 - June 30, 2020

My TBR has been out of control for YEARS. Then in January of 2019 I started tracking weekly my true reading/acquiring habits, and voila! I have been able to keep on top of things a little bit better. I may never get below 1,000 books, but at least I won't be topping out over 5,000! When a book cover is linked, it goes to the review here on my blog.

I will be posting on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and the last day of the month. Feel free to join in if you'd like!

If a book is linked in the 'Books Read' section, you can click the cover to go to my review.
