UltimateMama’s Kindergartener is a reading machine.  She devoured these books:

The Critter Club Amy and the Missing Puppy by Callie Barkley (terrific series)

Heidi Heckelbeck Has a Secret by Wanda Coven (another great series)

Henry and Mudge The First Book by Cynthia Rylant (wonderful classic series)


UltimateMama encourages her children to read alone in a quiet place each day!  Below are a few favorite books that her second grader enjoyed:

The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling

Frindle by Andrew Clements

The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies

The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy

Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew: Sleepover Sleuths by Carolyn Keene (really, the entire series is terrific)

UltimateMama loves reading to her girls ages 8 and 6 years old! Here are a few recent gems to add to your home library:

UltimateMama is a huge supporter of reading the Treasury of Illustrated Classics books to kids. There are about 24 classic books in the series adapted for youngsters (including Oliver Twist, Peter Pan, Black Beauty and more)!
