We love books. You probably all ready know that though, right? We’ve been enjoying seeing the mailman stumble up to the door with a stack of packages for us each day the past 2 week.
I’m not sure which part the boys like better, ripping open the packages to see which books have arrived now or checking out the bookmarks that Book Depository includes with the books!
So far we have 13 of 31 books from our first order. These are the books we’ll be reading and exploring over the course of the year with our new curriculum. There’s been lots of oohing and ahhing as we’ve opened up the books.
In fact, when the boys caught the title of The Secret Soldier which is about Deborah Sampson there was quite the scramble over who’d get to read it. She was one of the many ladies we learned about in the revolutionary war last year that really struck a cord with the boys. They were both disappointed when I snatched the book away and said no one was reading it yet. Pitiful I know..
Just don’t tell the boys, but I’ve been reading through some of the books. Amazing, I’ve loved each one I’ve looked in thus far. I could ooh and aah over them for days, but by then the postman might have another stack of them awaiting me.
And just because I know someone will think I can't count, the extra books in the photo are books we all ready owned that we will also be using..
