Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

These are book series that have been recommended for grades 3-4. Some are childhood favorites, and some I hope to read with my son this summer.

Do you have favorite book series that promote good values (respect, responsibility, fairness, kindness, and all those good things)?

A to Z Mysteries by Rony Roy
Amber Brown by Paula Danzier
A Wrinkle in Time
Encyclopedia Brown
Stanley books
Grandma's Attic by Arleta Richardson
Hardy Boys
Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park
Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Mr. Putter and Tabby by Cynthia Rylant
Mrs. Piggle Wiggle
Nancy Drew
Ralph S. Mouse by Beverly Cleary
Terhune’s dog books
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
The High-Rise Private Eyes by Cynthia Rylant

P.S. If I have any of these books in the wrong age categories, please let me know! Since I haven't read all of them (yet!), I'd really appreciate your feedback before I open them with my little guy.

Redwall is a great series, especially for a boy, but I have read the first two and I think they could be a bit scary for a 3rd grader. I would lean more towards 4th or 5th grade for this series.
