For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

My boys love to read. My 4 1/2 reads at grade 2 level. Here is what is our book shelves:

  •  Lots of Thomas the Tank Engine books (classics and new ones). Of his favorites are : Railway Rhyme, Thomas' Read-Along Storybook, and Thomas the Tank engine stories: 20 classic Stories in One Volume

  • Lots of Blue's clues books,

  • Lots of Tonka books,

  • Caillou,

  •  The Flying School Bus,

  • Lots of Dr. Zeuss books. Of their favorites are:  Are you my Mother,  Green Eggs and Ham

  • Curious George books,

  • The little engine that could,

  • Fisherprice books (2)

  • Spot

  • 5 Minutes Fairy Tales

  • A Treasury Old Testament Heroes

  • 100 Bible Stories, 100 Bible songs

  • How Many Bugs in a Box

They have many more but these are the ones they read over and over.

My oldest has read and enjoyed the Little Bear book series, some of Martha and George books. He also likes to read anything about train, and Franklin books.

A few weeks ago I got them this book called My World in Words and Pictures by Amazing Clay, and they love it.  My 21/2 loves to carry it along with him. I thought it would be great for them since they are both very visuals and pretty good with sight reading, but also as a tool for learning to spell common household and around us words. I also got them a little dictionary called Macmillan First Dictionary
which they use quite a bit as well.
