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!

My Son's Favorite Books - age 7

My son loves to read! I was just helping him look up the AR (Accelerated Reading) levels of the books on his bookshelf, so he could know when he could take comprehension tests on them at school. I thought I would ask him about his favorite books, and share them with you. He said:

  • Magic Tree House, by Mary Pope Osborne. "I learn a lot from them - especially their research guides. I think you would enjoy them too - they taught me a lot."
  • The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner. "I like their mysteries."
  • Beverly Cleary books - Ribsy, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, and Henry books.
  • Flat Stanley books by Jeff Brown
  • Jigsaw Jones Mystery books by James Preller
  • A to Z Mysteries by Ron Roy
  • Nate the Great books by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars by Eric Stevens

Sounds like his reading has really taken off this year! All those are favorites at our house, too.

Isn't it fun?

Right now we are giggling over the Geronimo Stilton mouse books.

Have him check out the Time Warp Trio books as well, especially since he likes Magic Tree House. A & B both like them!

You've mentioned them before, but I haven't read them yet. We'll have to check them out. I'm so glad to call you a reading friend and a 'just life' friend! :)
