The Kids Favorite Books

Nothing makes me happier than knowing that I am raising readers. Our initial IKEA spice racks/bookshelves in the boys room were starting to over flow with books to the point that we bought them bookshelves last month. 

While I always talk about what I'm reading I thought I'd share with you what the kids are reading right now as well as some of their favorite books. 


We as a family are still reading The American Story by David Rubenstein and just finished the chapter on Hamilton.. now we are ready to watch the show!

And we have also started as a family to read Harry Potter.. 



H is currently reading (with my help) his way through some of the Bad Kitty books by Nick Bruel.

When asked - here are H's Top 3 Books


1. The Nahrwal Books by Ben Clanton - His exact words "They are funny. It was so funny when the sea monkey said 789. I liked Narwhal, they are very funny. They have 9 foot long tooth coming out of their forehead." I second his sentiments.. these are the funniest, cutest books and my 10 year will also agree. He always joins us at story time if we are reading the Narwhal books. 


2. The Book with No Pictures by B.J Novak - "It's very funny and the person reading it has to say words that don't even make any sense. And in the book it says my best friend is a hippo named boo boo butt!!" This gem is written by The Office's B.J Novak. It is genius. 


3. I Love My Hat by Douglas Florian - "It's funny because it has silly rhymes and in the book it says nice underwear big brown bear." Obviously just saying the word underwear gets a huge laugh in my home. 

Here's are D's favorites


The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan - "They were very realistic. I felt like I was Percy. I got to go on so many adventures with him. I loved when he killed the flying pig in the fifth book which was my favorite. It was called the Last Olympian. I am currently rereading the series a third time"


The Super Life of Ben Braver by Marcus Emerson - "I like it because even though Ben Braver had no special powers he still manages to defeat an enormous earth worm"


Poplar Wood by E.E Ormsbee - "This book was very interesting. One character banished himself and it was so weird because they didn't have to banish themselves. They all lived in the same house but they couldn't see each other. When the kids went outside the house  they could see each other. And they needed to solve a mystery to be able to see there parents again." I don't know if you understood any of that.. I didn't.. even though he spent a lot of time trying to explain it to me.

Being accomplished readers will take your boys far in life! P.S. I love that unicorn bookmark in the Harry Potter book.

Your sons are adorable! Both of my kids loved to read in the summer. Harry Potter was huge and we all read the books at least twice through.

They are so cute! I miss reading with my kids!

How wonderful that you are raising readers, Hena! I also love the fact that you are reading books as a family, what a great thing to do! I loved reading your boys' reviews of their favourite books :-) xxx

A huge hooray from here. I think that being given a love of books and reading was the very best present my parents ever gave me. A gift that keeps giving (decades later).

Kelly said...

I think it's great that your boys are avid readers.... and that you read together as a family!! Reading, both fiction and non-fiction, opens up a whole world to us.

Debbie said...

it's really wonderful that they are reading, it was fun to read their book reviews! we always read to our boys when they were little and we read as a family also...i think those were some of my favorite times!

It's really awesome that you've instilled a love of reading in your kids at a young age and that you're reading books as a family as well as individually.

I had not heard of some of these.

I Love my Hat is cute. I hope you love Hamilton!

My girls love Pete the Cat!

Laura B said...

That history book sounds really interesting! We read Harry Potter with our oldest and loved it! The illustrated books are so nice to help the kids imagine the story!

Jeanie said...

I love this! Three cheers on raising readers -- well done, because I do believe that a love of reading doesn't just happen. It comes from seeing parents read and being around books of all kinds at all ages. Nice job, Hana!

Veronica Lee said...

Yayyyyy for raising readers! You are a great mom, Hena.

Christina said...

I love it when children read! My youngest reads and re-reads Warrior Cat stories by Erin Hunter on my Kindle. James (13) has only recently discovered the joy reading can bring. He struggles with reading and it has taken time for him to gain enough confidence to tackle a book. We love Ross Welford's book (The Dog Who Saved The World, What Not To Do If You Turn Invisible, Time Travelling With A Hamster, The 1000 Year Old Boy and The Kid Who Came From Space)

How wonderful, Hena:) That's great to see your kids love reading. My kids are not into it as much as I was at a young age, but my youngest RN really loves Roald Dahl books and the Series of Unfortunate Events series:)

I love that you are raising readers and reading together as a family!

YAAASSSS for Percy Jackson. I bought my youngest that series as she loved, loved it. I found her some books (ones your oldest may like) to read this summer:
1. the Magisterium series by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare - a middle grade series my kid says is like The Last Airbender (My kids watched the whole, epic animation on Netflix),
2. the Bad series by Pseudonymous Bosch b/c she loved his Secret series (book one's title is "The Name of this Book is Secret) and both of these series are middle grade,
&
3. City Spies by James Ponti - saw it advertised and it's a spy/espionage, middle grade tale.

I wish my kids enjoyed reading more! Both my husband and I love reading. Those IKEA spice racks for books is a neat idea!

It's wonderful that your kids like to read. Love that photo of your son with his chin on the books. You take the most delightful pictures of your little ones. : )

Have a good rest of the week. Almost August, oh my!

Mica said...

My kids love the book with no pictures too! :) It always makes them giggle when we read it! :)

We need more bookshelves too, I'm guilty of buying too many books for them, can never resist getting a few more at the opshops whenever we visit. I picked up two today for 50 cents as they were on special! :)

Hope that you are having a nice week and have a lovely weekend ahead of you :)
